They were able to deliver 1500V DC for passenger electrical heating.
Thanks to their dual gear ratio, they were able to be used either for passenger service at 140 Km/h or for freight service at 85 Km/h.
There are actually 2 sub-series which differ by their maximum speed:
- CC 72001 to CC 72020 - 140 Km/h
- CC 72021 to CC 72092 - 160 Km/h
Between 2002 and 2004, 30 CC 72000 have been re-motorized with a SEMT-Pielstick V16-PA4-200-VGA engine, allowing a reduction of particle emission by 84%. These re-motorized locomotives are classified as CC 72100 - they retained the last 2 digits of their original number (720xx --> 721xx).
A handful still survive for auxiliary services.

Road Name History:
SNCF employs more than 180,000 people in 120 countries around the globe. The railway network consists of about 32,000 km (20,000 mi) of route, of which 1,800 km (1,100 mi) are high-speed lines and 14,500 km (9,000 mi) electrified. About 14,000 trains are operated daily. The company has its headquarters in Saint Denis (93200), near Paris, 2 place aux Etoiles.
In 2010 SNCF was ranked 22nd in France and 214th globally on the Fortune Global 500 list.
It is the main business of the SNCF group, which in 2014 employed 245,763 people and had 27.2 billion € of sales in 120 countries. The chairman of the SNCF group is Guillaume Pepy.
On Max Ernst's 1976 retirement, Arnold employed perhaps 200 to 250 people, using three facilities in the Nuernberg area. The Company continued under family control until 1995, when Arnold went into bankruptcy and was sold to Rivarossi of Italy. Rivarossi, in turn, also went bankrupt, leading to the sale of all assets to Hornby of the United Kingdom. Production is carried out in China.
