Three-section diesel locomotive approved

22 Mar 2018

RUSSIA: Transmashholding’s Bryansk Engineering Plant has obtained certification for its three-section 3TE25K2M diesel locomotive, which has been designed to haul 7 100 tonne freight trains on the 2 800 km Baikal-Amur Magistral route between Taksimo, Tynda, Komsomolsk-na-Amure and Sovetskaya Gavan on the Pacific coast.

The operating costs are expected to be around 30% lower than with the diesel locomotives currently used on the route, and the design offers improved crew working conditions in the harsh environment.
