Bombardier Traxx DE stock locomotives  

This section describes the history of fifteen, silver 2.4MW Traxx DE locomotives. The story ended in a 15 unit locomotive pool, but started with a order from France, placed in 2008:

pre-history: 22.10.2008: SNCF Fret has awarded Bombardier with an order for 30 Traxx diesel-electric locomotives; total volume 293 million Euro. They have also taken an option for another 50 units. SNCF Fret plans to use these machines for services towards the main ports of the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.

On 05.12.2008, Bombardier released the final details about the order: The transport and logistics branch of the French Railways, Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer Français (SNCF) has confirmed a contract with Bombardier Transportation to supply 80 interoperable diesel electric BOMBARDIER TRAXX F140 DE locomotives, with an initial firm order of 45 locomotives. The value of this firm order is estimated at approximately 160 million euros ($203 million US). The first delivery is scheduled for May 2010. Serie designation will be BB 76000 with prefix 4 for SNCF Fret. The complete press release here.

At the end of 2008, SNCF founded a new subsidiary for locomotive leasing; Akiem. The company was first present on the Transport Messe in Munich in May 2009. SNCF locomotives that are underutilised will become available for lease via Akiem. One can think of modern Prima electrics and diesel-electrics, but also a part of the fleet of 80 Traxx locomotives which will be delivered by Bombardier from 2010. In the beginning, 233 locomotives worth EUR 430 Million will be transferred. Their number will increase to 400 by 2013. - SNCF

Bombardier 76 000/100 series stock locomotives: 4 prototypes  
In 2009, four different machines were built in Kassel to assist by the homologation of the SNCF/AKIEM BB 76000 series. Two machines of the BB 76000 sub serie for the SNCF, and two machines of the BB 76 100 sub serie for AKIEM, one of them beiing the former CBRail 285 110.
