In the beginning of the 1970's SJ (Swedish Rail) ordered 10 Rc-locos with higher max speed, 160 kph (100 mph); the type designation became Rc3. Apart from the maximum speed they are the same as the Rc2-locomotives. During the 1990's 23 Rc2-locos were converted into Rc3-locos. Also some of the Rc3-locos have been converted to add radio control.
