50 locomotives to CD Cargo

Rail technology leader, Bombardier Transportation and CD Cargo, the freight subsidiary of Czech Railways, have signed a purchase agreement for up to 50 of the newest generation of BOMBARDIER TRAXX Multi-System* (MS) locomotives. This first call-off is for 10 TRAXX MS3 locomotives.

The TRAXX MS3 locomotive is the only multi-system locomotive on the market with the Last Mile function that enables it to easily bridge non-electrified track sections found in ports or freight terminals. The vehicle addresses customers’ need for improved profitability, increased flexibility as well as for more reliable performance and availability throughout the locomotive’s entire lifecycle. This new multi-system locomotive will be equipped with the latest version of the European Train Control System, Baseline 3, ensuring seamless operation from day one.

With this new order, 54 modern, interoperable TRAXX multi-system locomotives have been ordered by Czech customers. CD Cargo’s first ten locomotives will be used for freight and passenger transport in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, Austria, Poland and Hungary while extending the fleet’s operability to Slovenia and Croatia. The locomotives will be assembled at Bombardier’s site in Kassel, Germany, with the carbodies coming from Wroclaw, Poland and the bogies produced in Siegen, Germany.
