The series E 41/141 was first delivered in 1956 for light mixed services on main and branch lines. It was the only series of the standard locomotive programme to be fitted with switchgear on the transformer’s low-voltage side. The switchgear had a characteristic noise level, which, in addition to the sizeable tractive power jumps, led to the nickname “Firecracker”.
