[SK] Multisystem Newag Dragon 2 on tests in Slovakia


While the production plant in Nowy Sacz in Poland is busy producing more multi-system Dragon 2 locomotives, the 001 is currently in Slovakia for authorization tests.

In April 2022, we informed our Expert subscribers about the ET43s that were moving out of the Velim testing circuit and onto Czech and Slovak rails. There are 24 locomotives on order from PKP Cargo.
