Railpool orders selection of TRAXX locomotives

Locomotive leasing company Railpool has ordered a mixture of multi-system and Last Mile TRAXX locomotives. The €75 million order is for 18 locomotives - five Last Mile units and 13 multi-system locos. It's the first time the Last Mile type locomotives will be used in Scandinavia. The Last Mile variant, although an electric locomotive, has a low-emission diesel engine and battery on board, allowing it to run on both electrified and non-electrified routes. The remaining multi-system locomotives will operate on routes between Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland and Italy. Bombardier plans to deliver the first Last Mile locomotive to Railpool for Q3 2016.
