Note: Bombardier TRAXX is a modular product platform of electric and Diesel-electric mainline locomotives built by Bombardier Transportation, built in both freight and passenger variants. The first version was a dual voltage AC locomotive built from 2000 for German railways; later versions include DC versions, as well as quadruple voltage machines, able to operate on most European electrification schemes: 1.5/3.0 kV DC and 15/25 kV AC. The family was expanded to include diesel powered versions in 2006. Elements common to all variants include the steel bodyshells, the two bogies with two powered axles each, the three-phase asynchronous induction motors, the cooling exhausts on the roof edges, and the wheel disc brakes.

The TRAXX brand name itself was introduced in 2003. The acronym stands for Transnational Railway Applications with eXtreme fleXibility. Locomotives were primarily made for the railways of Germany, with orders coming from other European countries including France, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Italy, Belgium, Luxembourg, Poland, Spain and Hungary.

Sieht absolut genial aus in diesem Schneegestöber! :D
Hoffentlich gibts diesen Winter richtig Schnee, sonst könnte es schwierig werden, so einen Schuss zu machen...

Das Konzept der "Rollenden Landstraße" scheint es in der Schweiz noch zu geben. In Deutschland hat man es ja meines Wissens längst wieder aufgegeben. Dabei ist das aus ökologischer Sicht viel sinnvoller.

Das Foto gefällt mir gut =)
