Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
  1. I've never heard anything about it. I think they don't but since both Dragon and Griffin are modular platforms, high demand may convince them. But I think there's no actual demand for Last Mile locomotives, they're good for showing off but actual operators are not willing to buy them. For the last two years Bombardier sold just 5 Last Mile Traxxes to Railpool. Thing is, Railpool is not exactly independent from Bombardier. Maybe they are too expensive or too complicated?
  2. Gama Marathon has CAT C15 engine with 570HP (420kW). That's much more than Traxx Last Mile (240kW) so it can be pretty useable while shunting. It has two tanks with fuel (500l each) wchich gives the range of about 40 kilometers (that's why it's called Marathon).
