[NL] A first: Rail Force One to lease Euro 9000 locomotives from ELP

‘Rail Force One is one of the first European railway companies ordering a new generation of heavy-duty six-axle multi-system locomotives; The innovative, powerful Euro 9000 Locomotive, manufactured by Stadler. Having an electric- and diesel power unit with a maximum of 9 Megawatt, we will be ready to run the heaviest trains cross-border through Europe. Thanks to our partners from European Loc Pool we will take the locomotives in operations from 2023 onwards.’
