[DE] An extra ELP locomotive for IGE Bahn


IGE Bahn from Germany has decided to add an extra EuroDual locomotive to its future six-axle locomotive fleet. This means that four machines will be hired from ELP in 2023.

  • 2x EuroDual (Class 2159) – handover planned for Q1 2023 and June 2023, respectively;
  • 2x Euro9000 (Class 2019) – expected for 2023/2024.

With these locomotives, IGE wants to offer its customers reliable transport in plannable time slots on heavily congested main routes. The extra fourth locomotive will be used for heavy mineral oil transport.
