Prototype History:
On the occasion of its electrification, the Bodensee-Toggenburg-Bahn (BT) procured in 1930 six locomotives of the type Be 4/4 and two railcars BCFe 2/4 . The motor coaches were related in the electrical part with the Be 4/4 and had the same drive motors.

The locomotives were ordered from the Ateliers de Sécheron (SAAS) in Geneva, which built the electric part and supplied its spring drive. The mechanical part came from the Swiss locomotive and machine factory in Winterthur. The Be 4/4 was designed on the model of the BBÖ 1170 and the BBÖ 1170.1, with which one had already had good experiences in Austria.

Road Name History:
The Emmental-Burgdorf-Thun-Bahn (EBT) is a former standard gauge railway company that was based in Burgdorf in Switzerland. It was created on January 1, 1942 through the merger of the Burgdorf-Thun Railway (BTB) and the Emmental Railway (EB). In 1997, it merged with the United Huttwil-Bahnen (VHB) and the Solothurn-Münster-Bahn (SMB) to form the regional transport Mittelland (RM). The RM, in turn, merged with the BLS Lötschbergbahn (BLS) to form BLS AG in June 2006.
