When you say the AC locomotives can operate across borders on AC systems, are you talking about AC systems in general, or just to the 15 Kv 16.7 Hz AC system common to Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Sweden and Norway. Specifically are these locomotives electrically compatible with the 25 Kv 50 Hz system used elsewhere in Europe?.
