A total of 257 universal electric locomotive class 1042 were built from 1963 onwards. From 1966 onwards, the machines had strong engines installed to achieve a maximum speed of 150 km/h. The locomotives were given the series designation 1042.5 and hauled all types of trains, but mostly fast passenger trains and goods trains as well as cross-border trains to Germany. Over time, the appearance of the locomotives changed. From the mid-1980s onwards, the ÖBB had the frame, running gear and roof painted in umbra grey as part of major repairs.
