Railway Gazette: Bombardier launches Traxx electro-diesel

GERMANY: Bombardier Transportation unveiled the latest addition to its Traxx modular locomotive family at the Transport Logistic trade fair in München on May 10. Known as the 'Last Mile Diesel', it is a Traxx AC electric locomotive with a supplementary diesel engine.

The design is intended to avoid the need to change locomotives when delivering freight to unelectrified sidings, or for moving single-system electric locos around yards where there is a changeover to a different electrification system.
