AMT 13xx Dual Power  

In August 2008, Bombardier Transportation signed an unique duo-contract for an unique product. New Jersey Transit (NJT) from the USA and the Agence Metropolitaine de Transport (AMT) both ordered Dual-Power locomotives, a new product from the Canadian-German manufacturer specially developed the meet the very special needs of both operators.

The Dual-Power locomotive is a fully fledged electric (4400 kW) and diesel locomotive (3100 kW engine output), combined in one driving unit, with only four axles. The total weight of one locomotive is 130 tonnes, resulting in a impressive 32,5 tonnes per axle. One can image the complexity of such a drive train, and still keep everything under the maximum axle weight.

AMT ordered twenty units in 2008, resulting in the AMT batch 1350-1369. Construction of the first machines started in 2010. At the Innotrans 2010 trade fair in Berlin, the first 1:1 model was presented. Not quiet finished, but it gave a good impression of the impressive scale of the Dual Power. The locomotive on display was the first unit for NJT, no. 4500, but in a special trade fair livery being a mix between the final NJT and AMT color schemes.

For AMT, locomotive no. 1350 was the first to cross the Atlantic arriving at the Port de Newark on 27.05.2011. After disembarking the machine, its was transported to rails by truck and a freight train transported in the Montreal, Canada.

AMT no. 1351 arrived from Kassel in Vienna on 05.08.2011, for testing under extreme weather conditions in the climate chambers of RTA Rail Tec Arsenal.
