Refurbishing non-sustainable locomotives

CZ Loko has won a tender to modernise more class 742 diesel locomotives for CD Cargo. The contract provides for the delivery of 25 locomotives and an option for five more. The class 742 diesel locomotives, built between 1977 and 1986, need to be modernised because they are no longer sustainable.


Class 742 locomotives form the foundation of CD Cargo’s fleet, with 140 of them deployed daily. The Czech carrier currently operates a total of 37 converted class 742.71X locomotives.


This is a complete renewal, where only the main frame and chassis, which also undergo a major modification, will remain from the original vehicles. The rest is new, including the installation of an ETCS signalling system. (ben)
