Hello all,

May I introduce Ludmilla's big sister...

On trials near Nürnberg, in a train with an ÖBB measurement coach, tank wagons and pulled by MWB 1116 912.

The picture shows how the monster squeezes into the loading gauge!

...the brand new Siemens Eurorunner ER20CF for the Lithuanian State Railways (Lietuvos Geležinkeliai). Pictures from: here (in German obviously!).

These are the technical details:

Power = 2000 kW (2,700 kW - 3,500 kW on the ER30 versions for DSB, Russian GOST, German EBO)
Maximum speed = 120 km/h
Starting traction effort = 450 kN
Weight = 138t
Length = 22,85 m

This is the new face of Siemens diesel cabs, designed to meet the new European-wide safety standards and in this case give a brute the face of a bruiser...all very good...this locomotive just says get out of my way - or get squashed very thoroughly! It probably eats lost sheds for breakfast before taking bites out of passing electrics!!
