The EffiShunter 1000 for the Italian operator EVM Rail and the sixth EffiShunter 1600 for the Finnish operator Fennia Rail were recently completed at the CZ LOKO works in Jihlava.
The first mentioned locomotive, 744.131, which is intended for another new Italian client of CZ LOKO, is scheduled to be handed over during October. The 774.722 broad- gauge machine should be dispatched at the turn of September and October, together with a locomotive of the same type for the Arcelor Mittal Krivoy Rog steelworks. Both will be transported to Haniska pri Košiciach, eastern Slovakia, using the temporary 1,435 mm-gauge bogies, and then will be fitted with their own bogies for the further journey.
