Bombardier Transportation has won orders for the supply of 58 Bombardier Traxx locomotives from the leasing company Railpool.
The two contracts overall amount to approximately $276 million. The agreement includes an option for an additional 80 locomotives.
The Traxx product family is designed for the transport of goods as well as passengers on national and international routes, and is suitable for all networks. The platform consists of three electric variants (multi-system, alternating and direct current locomotives) and a diesel-electric design.
The delivery of the first locomotives is planned for August 2009.
