BR 285

The Traxx DE locomotives are the versatile diesel powered version of the Traxx 2e platform. They are equipped with a 2,200 kW MTU 16V 4000 R41L engine and AC electric transmission that delivers a starting tractive effort of 270kN and a maximum operating speed of 140km/h. These locomotives are popular with operators familiar with operating Traxx electric fleets but needing reliable traction on routes with long stretches of non-electrified track.
