Back in 2016, we reported on an innovative and unique concept by Newag. The Polish company wanted to develop a hybrid train. The presented visualization back then depicted an EMU in combination with a diesel power car. A prototype had to be ready before April 2018, but this never happened. However, Newag promised to bring a surprise to TRAKO 2019; the 36WEh hybrid train, proving it did not forget about the original idea. It is an EMU that can go beyond electrified lines, using diesel motive power.
