New locos for Egypt

GE Transportation and the Egyptian National Railways (ENR) announced recently that the 80th and final Evolution Series locomotive has been released for service.

These locomotives have been successfully hauling freight and transporting passengers for several months, logging tens of thousands of kilometres, transporting hundreds of thousands of passengers. This is ENR’s first order of GE’s Evolution Series, the most technologically advanced diesel electric, heavy-haul locomotive in the world. “The Evolution Series locomotives sold by GE Transportation to the Egyptian National Railways provide a platform for rail growth, grounded in high tractive effort, fuel savings and future emissions reductions,” said Lorenzo Simonelli, President and CEO of GE Transportation.
