[PL] Newag: Dragon locomotives with shunting diesel for Freightliner Poland [updatedx3]
Newag Gliwice just announced a new order for electric locomotives. ING Lease Poland will finance five new Dragon locomotives, to be operated by Freightliner Poland (FPL). The deal has a value of 17,5 million euro. All machines should be available to FPL by 31.07.2016.
Update: Freightliner Poland has released an image of a scale model of their new machine. We see a Dragon locomotive in the yellow and green livery of FPL. Its power rating will be 5MW. Curious is the inclusion of the orange line around the roof of the locomotive. It is a visual reminder not to come too close to the overhead wiring and originates from UK (!) railway regulations.
Update 2: The Dragon locomotives will feature a additional 520 kW combustion engine. Designation for this Dragon locomotive version is E6DCF-DP. - biznes.pap.pl / 1435.pl / MG / rynek-kolejowy.pl
Update 3: Neag has publsihed information itself about the new order. The page includes a design study of the locomotive, which livery is different from the one applied to the scale model.
