Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation and the Captrain Deutschland Group have signed a contract for six BOMBARDIER TRAXX multi-system locomotives. The new locomotives will be used to freight transport, mainly in Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. Delivery is scheduled for early 2018.
As part of the highly-successful TRAXX platform, which boasts over 2,000 units sold worldwide, the TRAXX MS locomotive is compatible with all common European voltages, making it particularly suitable for cross-border traffic. With an ability to easily pass through multiple-country corridors and a proven reliability rate of nearly 100%, the TRAXX MS is the locomotive of choice for cross-border freight and passenger transport.
Bombardier Transportation offers integrated fleet support and tailored service solutions for the more than 400 TRAXX MS locomotives that have been sold. This enables operators to benefit from a long-term spare parts guarantee and an extensive Europe-wide service network.
