Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Railway Gazette: Electro-diesel shunter order

SWITZERLAND: SBB Cargo has awarded Stadler Winterthur a SFr88m contract to supply 30 electro-diesel locomotives in 2012-13 for shunting and light freight duties.

...Like the Ee922, the Eem923 will be able to operate under both 15 kV 16·7 Hz and 25 kV 50 Hz electrification, but it will also have a 360 kW auxiliary diesel engine for use in unelectrified sidings. Weighing 42 to 45 tonnes, it will have both axles powered, a top speed of 100 km/h, and a maximum power at wheel rim of 1 500 kW in electric mode or 290 kW on diesel power.

(Also see discussion on shunters including the Ee 922.)
