A Bombardier Traxx AC3 Last Mile locomotive owned by leasing company Railpool was tested on the Zagreb - Slavonski Brod line on December 14 with the aim of completing authorisation for the commercial operation of the type in Croatia during the first quarter of 2016.

During tests the locomotive ran for 10km in Last Mile mode, making the transition from electric to diesel operation on-the-move.

Dynamic testing also focussed on the performance of braking systems in different brake modes.
