New electric locos from Romania


NGT6 1315

On a totally different note: railcolor.net now has a section dedicated to a pair of new electric Co'Co' configured locomotive types from Romania. These were designed by a company called Softronic, as a collaborative effort with well-known loco builder Electroputere and other partners. Mechanically, they are based on the 060 EA type locos - now known as class 40 after a couple of refits - of old, but feature either synchronous or asynchronous three-phase AC motors and other modern technology. They are known by the names of "Phoenix" and "Trans Montana" respectively.

I'm not quite decided whether I like the extravagant styling on the body fronts, but I do think it is an interesting concept. Assuming they are indeed drawing on proven technology, this may well be an advantage.
