Testing… testing…

Hello, welcome on Railcolornews.com. This is an online magazine about the European railway industry. New trains, new colors, new designs. This website is in beta. We are trying out different functions and content types. Even the logo is still under construction :) Nevertheless, the news we bring is up to date, easy to find (we hope) and illustrated with pictures and videos.

Do you have suggestions, remarks, or do you feel like joining this project, don't hesitate to write us: hello@railcolornews.com

Have fun!

Alstom H3 -  Hybridrangierlokomotive  Die 700 kW starken  H3-Lokomotiven basieren auf einer dreiachsigen Fahrzeugplattform  mit einer Höchstgeschwindigkeit von bis zu 100 km/h. Sie erhalten  im Normalbetrieb die Energie abgasfrei und geräuscharm aus einem  Batteriesatz. Über ein kleines Dieselaggregat mit Generator wird  die Energie erzeugt. Nur wenn die Batterieleistung zum Bewegen der  Fahrzeuge nicht mehr ausreicht, schaltet sich dieser  Dieselgenerator selbständig zu, um die Batterien nachzuladen bzw.  mehr Leistung an die Antriebe zu geben. Durch den Einsatz der  Hybrid-Rangierlokomotiven wird der Kraftstoffverbrauch gegenüber  konventionellen Rangierlokomotiven um bis zu 50 % reduziert.  Weiterhin wird der Schadstoffausstoß um bis zu 70 % gesenkt. Da die  Hybridloks in unterschiedlichen Betriebszuständen, überwiegend im  reinen Batteriemodus, bewegt werden, ermöglicht dies zukünftig  einen geräuschlosen und abgasfreien Nullemissionsbetrieb.
