These locomotives were converted during the war to run on electrified lines where coal was in short supply. AFAIK they were not very efficient.

Maybe someone else can shed some more light on this subject.
That's pretty much it. The Swiss coal supply was basically cut off during WW2, while hydro-electricity was abundant. I have heard the efficiency was rather low.
