Now it's possible to bridge the gap between place of arrival and the multi-modal freight terminal
At the begining of January Swiss Rail Traffic took over a new locomotive: Bombardier Traxx AC3 with Last Mile module. The 5.6MW locomotive has a extra diesel engine (type Deutz 2013 BR-4V) with 230 kW engine output and a fuel tank of 400 liters. It then had a top speed of 50 kph, and it could haul trains up to 2000 t for 8-10 hours.
Now it's possible to bridge the gap between place of arrival and the multi-modal freight terminal, the shunt yard, the harbor network or the customer's factory site. Often short distances (therefore the last miles) with no overhead wire and the exclusive domain of diesel shunters.
Swiss Rail Traffic is a independent railway transport companie for special traffics and test/measurement in Switzerland. In addition to the new Traxx, they use regularly one other electrical and 6 diesel locomotives.
