Railpool receives first Vectron locomotive

Railpool, the locomotive leasing company based in Munich, Germany, that ordered six locs in all at the end of 2010, received the first Vectron locomotive at the beginning of November 2012.

Summarizing the reasons for his firm’s decision, Dr. Walter Breinl, CEO of Railpool GmbH, said: “The decisive factor for Railpool was that we can deploy the Vectron in freight, regional and intercity services without restriction – in other words the locomotives are totally interchangeable.”

The Railpool locomotives have a rated power of 6,400 kW and have been designed to run at up to 200 km/h. The vehicles will be used in cross-border passenger and freight services in Germany and Austria and are equipped with the European Train Control System (ETCS).

The locomotives are being built at the locomotive factory in the Allach district of Munich.
