Infranord Tb loco

SWEDEN: Hitachi Rail is to fit ETCS and STM-ATC2 equipment on two Class Tb diesel locomotives operated by state-owned railway construction and maintenance company Infranord.

STM-ATC2 enables vehicles equipped with ETCS to operate on lines which have not yet been equipped with ETCS lineside technology.

‘These technologies are more commonly used on passenger and freight rolling stock; using the technology on maintenance trains represents an innovative step for both Infranord and Hitachi Rail’, said Eric Morand, Vice-President Nordics at Hitachi Rail, on February 16.
