Locomotive Data Encyclopedia

Since 2001, Railcolor has been documenting all the new modern locomotives* being built by European manufacturers. All information per locomotive type(+customer) is currently being collected and will be re-published. These ‘Data Pages’ or ‘loco portraits’ are listed on this page.

Basically, we are building the most extensive modern locomotive data encyclopedia online. These pages are part of our Expert sections for subscribers. You can order your subscription here.

Each page contains:

  • History and background of the owner
  • Order details, delivery schedule, authorization details
  • Technical parameters, country-specific packages, work numbers, revision dates
  • Overview of all designs and logos with images and illustrations

*We define a ‘modern locomotive’ as follows: Three-phase electric locomotive – the standard since the early 90s in Europe.
