Bombardier Transportation has received an order from Angel Trains for the delivery of 36 TRAXX locomotives, consisting of 26 Bombardier TRAXX F140 MS multi-system locomotives and 10 F140 DC locomotives.



Under an agreement between the two companies, Angel Trains has the option to order up to 100 locomotives subject to the same general conditions.



The new order by Angel Trains is intended to complement its existing fleet of diesel and TRAXX AC locomotives.
Delivery of the DC locomotives is scheduled between October 2006 and March 2007, with the multi-system locomotives following between January 2007 and September 2007. The locomotives will be manufactured at Bombardier’s facilities in Kassel, Germany.


Building on the successful placement in service of 35 Bombardier TRAXX AC locomotives already owned by Angel Trains, Europe’s largest locomotive lessor, Angel Trains intends to offer the locomotives for deployment on international services in Europe.



Ten of the TRAXX MS locomotives are earmarked for services between Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. A further ten will operate shuttle services between Germany and Poland, and six are intended for cross-border services between Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy. The ten TRAXX F 140 DC locomotives are designated for deployment in Italy.


The modular multi-system locomotive, made for freight services within Europe, is designed for both DC and AC power supply systems and can be equipped with all the various train safety systems currently in use in Europe.
