The Re 460 (popularly known as the Lok 2000) series are modern four-axle electric locomotives of the Swiss Federal Railways. They originally replaced Re 420, Re 440, Re 620 locomotives. They were introduced as part of the Bahn 2000 project, a massive project to modernise and improve capacity on Switzerland's railways. They are now mainly used for passenger services, often in conjunction with the IC 2000 double decker trains(often used to pull InterCity and InterRegio trains in German and French language areas), their freight role having been assumed by Re 482s. They are maintained at Yverdon.
