FS Class E.620 was a class of third-rail electric locomotives built by Officine Reggiane for the Italian State Railways (FS). They were built in 1925 using motors and electrical equipment from Class E.10 railcars [1] which had been withdrawn in 1923. They were equipped with six nose-suspended direct current traction motors with a total output of 950 kW. The drive to the axles was by gears and the maximum speed was 85 km/h. After World War II they were converted to 3,000 volt DC operation and became FS Class E.621.
