[Data] Vossloh DE18

Last updated 29.05.2020

After taking over Maschinenbau Kiel (or MaK in short), Vossloh revised the range of products and started to focus on a 4-axle mainline locomotive with a center-cab. In several stages, new products were introduced resulting in locomotive family widespread throughout western Europe. Well-known DE18-predecessors in the same power range are Vossloh’s G1206 and G1700 BB types. The fifth-generation of locomotives, introduced in 2010, comprises of the diesel-hydraulic G6/G12/G18 and the diesel-electric DE12/DE18. The DE18 is the flagship with a 1.8 MW MTU diesel engine, hence the name.
