New locomotives to expand fleet
The European train leasing company Alpha Trains has just taken delivery of the last two out of of a total of ten new Vectron multisystem locomotives. Units nine and ten immediately hit the rails for TX Logistik.
In addition to the financing and the project management during the construction phase, Alpha Trains is also responsible for the complete service and maintenance of the locomotives.
The Vectrons have a maximum power of 6,400 kW and are rated for a top speed of 160 km/h. For cross-border traffic, the vehicles are equipped with country-specific transaction and train safety systems, as well as the European train control system (ETCS). (ben)
