On 23.07.2018, an electric train arrived at Jeruzalem for the first time. It’s a next step in the commissioning of the A1 electric railway connecting Jerusalem and Tel Aviv in the near future.
Of this test run an impressive video has been published made by Alexey Bogoslavsky. A second one shows an electric making the run together with a diesel machine.
Currently, there are seven TRAXX AC3 locomotives in Israel (3001-3007) while no. 3008-3011, all completed by now, are awaiting delivery later this year.
