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.
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)
