In early December 2014 the SBB works in Yverdon-les-Bains completed the modernisation of 460 084, the project taking about a year to realise. This photo was taken on 8 December 2014. The main visible differences between 460 084 and non-modernised Re 460s is the use of gloss varnish and the application of SBB logos to the front ends. The second modernisation, which will include installation of the new ABB-built traction converters, is expected to be completed during the first six months of 2016, and three more locomotives will follow in 2017. The batch modernisations will then probably run by 2022.
