STM TGMK2 shuting loco

RUSSIA: Sinara Transport Machines’ first TGMK2 light shunting locomotive is being tested by industrial logistics subsidiary SinaraPromTrans at the Taganrog Metallurgical Plant, ahead of further refinement of the design at STM’s Kalugaputmash plant.

The compact locomotive has a hydraulic drive and a microprocessor diagnostic system. It is designed to be powered by engines from 380 to 550 hp with axleloads up to 23∙5 tonnes.

The raised cab is intended to give the driver a good view, while the design also offers the possibility of unmanned operation.
