Torsten Lehnert, CEO of RAILPOOL, said: „Ordering these 15 locomotives will expand our fleet of Traxx locomotives to more than 250, underlining our long-standing, close partnership with Alstom. We are also pleased to be able to offer our customers in Scandinavia and Italy additional, modern locomotives together with our proven full-service concept. All locomotives will be equipped with the proven Last Mile function, which significantly expands the range of applications for our locomotives.“
