On 2 December 2020, Bombardier Transportation handed over the 200th TRAXX locomotive to Railpool. The event took place at the Kassel works and highlighted the strong partnership between Bombardier and Railpool that has lasted for more than a decade.
Torsten Lehnert, Railpool CEO, said: „Our first TRAXX was delivered in 2009, and the intense collaboration with Bombardier made the successful start of Railpool possible. So far we have ordered a total of 232 TRAXXes. These locomotives are/will be in service with our customers in 16 countries.“
The recently delivered TRAXX MS2E is homologated for cross-border traffic in seven European countries (Germany, Austria, Poland, the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary). It forms part of an order for ten locomotives placed in December 2018. Railpool, one of the largest TRAXX customers, has ordered nearly 10 % of the global TRAXX locomotive fleet. More than 2,300 TRAXXes have been sold in the last 20 years.
