MRS Logistics will take delivery in August of the first of seven rack locomotives being built by Stadler in Switzerland under a Reais 120m ($US 7.6m) contract.

The 5MW Bo-Bo locomotives, which have a tractive effort of 700kN, have a triple cog system to enable them to negotiate the steep gradients on the line from the port of Santos to São Paulo.
