[Dossier / Expert] BB 36000 ‘Astride’ – SNCF/Trenitalia/Akiem

This is an Railcolor Dossier article – a collection of all the news we published about a specific locomotive type (per owner) since 2007.

In the early nineties, the delivery of 264 synchrone two-system BB 26000 “Sybic” series by GEC Alsthom to the French railways (SNCF) is ongoing.
