The first TME3 locomotive will be handed over to BC as early as the end of this month, and the remaining units will be delivered by 2014. The 46-tonne TME3s will be produced as kits by CZ Loko in the Czech Republic and shipped to Belarus for final assembly.

The 403kW diesel-electric units will be fitted with Caterpillar C15 engines, asynchronous traction motors, and electrodynamic brakes.
