Vossloh EURO3000/4000: Technical specs  
Four members
The Euro program is based on four main sub types. The EURO3000 passenger (Renfe 334 series) and the EURO4000 freight (all Euro4000s built up till now) have become reality; the other two only exist on the drawing board. The program illustrates the flexibility of the EURO platform, of course it is always possible to adjust a certain type, or mix and mingle two versions to meet customer specific demands. What unites all versions is the newly developed cabins, placed inside the locomotive body shell, meeting the latest crash safety regulations and the UIC 505-1 loading gauge. They are all equipped with air-conditioning and a central placed driver desk. Up till now all machines have a diesel engine and a electrical transmission revised or newly built by EMD. But, if a customer wishes for it, diesel engines of other manufacturers can find their place on the EURO platform.
