Alpha Trains / RBSAF 185.2  
in short
orders
Alpha Trains was formerly known as Angel Trains Cargo. The new name was introduced on 01.01.2010.

Angel Trains is a rolling stock leasing company formed after the privatisation of the UK railway system. It founded a subsidiary, Angel Trains Cargo, serving the continental European market for freight locomotives. Many units property of ATC/Alpha Trains were delivered in the standard ATC livery: turquoise and green: 185 575-577, 607-616, 617-619, 633 and 634. Standard these units were equipped for running in Germany and Austria only.

185 607-616 were additionally equipped for services in Hungary. After being built in Kassel, they were transported to the Bombardier site in Dunakeszi, Hunagry, where the local signalling system was installed, EVM120. Then they came back to Germany, waiting for further orders.

185 610 and 611 have a curious history. Although they had the ATC delivery during completion, and they went to Hungary for modification, they were never delivered as such to ATC. In May 2009 they were sold to Railpool and hired to the EVB from Germany. They now run as 185 672 and 673, painted in grey and blue.

7 locomotives, designated 185 603-606 and 630-632 are leased to the HGK and are painted red. They can be used in Germany and Austria.


A batch of ten was built for Norwegian freight operator CargoNet (185 620-629), with the D/A+S/N package. They run in Norway and Sweden and Norwegian style service numbers: EL19 001-010.

 

Angel Trains Cargo has a long-term contract with Bombardier for the delivery of hundreds of Traxx machines. As soon as the market asks for it, ATC can ask Bombardier to built a selection of the machines form this contract. Delivery of Traxx F140 AC2 machines therefore happens gradually:
