Commercial services with the @Stadler EURO6000

We are delighted to see our EURO6000 locomotives on Iberian tracks!

Our long-term customer @CAPTRAIN España has started commercial services with the @Stadler EURO6000 on the Spanish Iberian gauge network. The assets mark a milestone for freight transport in Spain: As the most powerful locomotives ever to run on the Iberian Peninsula they will increase the amount of transported goods on tracks drastically. The EURO6000 will also permit connecting Asturias with the rest of the Iberian Peninsula through the new Pajares railway tunnels, thanks to the multi-voltage system (3,000V, 25kV) installed in the locomotive

The new EURO6000s are part of a framework contract signed between Captrain España and Alpha Trains for the lease of up to 21 Stadler EURO6000 units, of which fourteen units have already been confirmed.
