Traxx approved for entire DACH region

Bombardier’s Traxx AC3 Last Mile Locomotive has received approval to operate in Austria, certifying it for the entire DACH region: Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

The Last Mile variant, although an electric locomotive, has a low-emission diesel engine and battery on board, allowing it to run on both electrified and non-electrified routes.

Christian Diewald, managing director for Bombardier Transportation Austria, said: “Approval in Austria is another very important milestone for further implementing of Traxx AC3 Last Mile locomotives in Central Europe, but also in Austria itself.

“It is the only locomotive which has already proven its strong performance in Last Mile operation during many successful test runs in Austria as well as in commercial operation in Switzerland – now it is ready for revenue service in Austria.”

Bombardier has sold more than 240 Last Mile locomotives to date.
