FOLLOWING yesterday's purchase of six Vectron locomotives from Siemens, Railpool has awarded a Euros 120 million contract to Bombardier for 36 Traxx electric locomotives. Delivery will start in July 2011 and should be completed by November 2013.
Railpool says that traffic growth is increasing demand for its locomotives, which now total 100 electric units. German railfreight was up 16.7% by the third quarter of 2010 compared with the same period in 2009. Railpool is a joint venture of two German banks: HSH Nordbank and KfW Ipex-Bank.
