Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I won't get clever of Fret. Maybe they just want to replace all their old line service diesels, irrespective of size?... However, if they are eyeing international traffic, that 2MW MTU engine adopted from the Siemens EuroRunners is both a little weak and a notorious problem child. (The Bombardier F140 DE have the latest update of it, don't know if it's any better.) The Belgian investment looks like the rushed effort of a latecomer (trying to keep up with DB Cargo/Railion/DB Schencker's voracious expansion from the UK to Poland, from Denmark to Italy).
