The locomotives can operate under ac and dc electrification and are also equipped with last-mile diesel propulsion for unelectrified lines.

The locomotives will be used to operate direct cross-border freight services in Luxembourg, Germany, Poland, Austria, Belgium and France.

“The new Traxx multi-system locomotives will allow us to cross numerous borders as easily as a lorry, providing our clients with a competitive transport solution that contributes to reaching the European New Green Deal objective of increasing rail’s share of Europe’s overall transport to 30% by 2030,” says Mr Laurence Zenner, CEO of CFL Cargo.
