The BB 22200 is a class of electric locomotives in service with the French railways SNCF, built by Alsthom between 1976-1986. They are a polycurrent version (1500 CV direct current and 25 kV 50 Hz AC) of the BB 7200 and BB 15000 classes,[1] with which it shares the exterior appearance. Thanks to this characteristic they can run in all French electrified lines.
