Info about the original

The product designation TRAXX 3 from Bombardier Transportation reflects the continued development of the well-known TRAXX 2 locomotives of the 146 and 185 series. The new vehicles include the 147 series, for passenger and long-distance traffic, and the 187 series for goods traffic. In addition to the changed appearance of the front, which now consists largely of GRP parts, customers can order a last-mile module for the TRAXX 3 platform if desired. This allows these vehicles, which are designed as electric locomotives, to run on short sections of track or perform shunting work independently with a diesel engine or under battery power. The first test drives with the new TRAXX 3 locomotives took place shortly after their unveiling in 2011. Thanks to many smaller and some large orders, including a framework agreement for 450 units with DB AG, well over 200 locomotives of the TRAXX 3 platform have been delivered to customers to date and are currently in service throughout Europe.
