|In the 1970s NSB was faced with a challenge on the steep and wintry Bergensbanen and the El 14 was not adequate enough for the task. As the Swedish Rc4 locomotives were tested on the Northeast Corridor with success, NSB chose to try the units on Bergensbanen also. In 1976 NSB ordered six units, but chose to modify the Rc4 design, including the pointed nose which is able to force through the occasional snowdrifts.|
