Ten locomotives for Luxembourg’s carrier
Bombardier Transportation has signed a contract with the Luxembourg-based railway undertaking CFL cargo for ten innovative TRAXX MS locomotives, taking a major leap towards integrated railfreight transport in Europe.
The new engines will ensure seamless cross-border transport from Central Europe to France. The locomotives will be authorised for service in Luxembourg, Germany, Poland, Austria, Belgium and France.
Some of them will be equipped with the innovative last mile diesel concept that enables the TRAXX locomotive to operate in non-electrified terminals and sites.
CFL cargo already operates in six countries in Europe and specialises in international and cross-border services. (ben)
