„Natural Talent” - Alpha Trains gets 400th locomotive on track

Luxembourg, 7th October 2021 - A good reason to celebrate: with the two newly designed Vectron multi-system locomotives leased to TX Logistik, the 399th and the 400th Alpha Trains locomotives are now on track.

Back in 2017, the leasing company delivered the first Vectron MS to TX Logistik, at that time with the slogan "Two poles with enormous tractive power". "A great motto also for the future success of our long-term partnership," says Shaun Mills, CEO of Alpha Trains Group. A total of 14 Vectron locomotives from Alpha Trains operate for the rail logistics experts from Troisdorf. With the current locomotive designs, the company is now once again underlining its commitment to climate protection: "Sustainability and Green Logistics are part of our corporate strategy," emphasises Gian Paolo Gotelli, CEO of TX Logistik. "We want to continue to expand this in the future."

Fernando Pérez, Managing Director of the Locomotives Division of Alpha Trains, adds: “We are delighted that our 400th locomotive is on track with TX Logistik, one of our most long-standing and reliable customers over the years – a cooperation that we hope to continue expanding for many years to come.”

Alpha Trains, Europe′s largest lessor of locomotives and passenger trains, offers logistic companies a wide range of electric and diesel locomotives, certified for a total of 19 European countries. The locomotive portfolio in combination with the different leasing models - from Full Flex to Full Service to Dry or Soggy Lease - enables Alpha Trains to respond to market requirements with individual and tailor-made leasing solutions.

Alpha Trains supports the sustainable development of European rail transport in East and West and is gradually investing in the further expansion of its locomotive portfolio. This includes further Siemens Vectron multi-system locomotives for Italy and Eastern Europe on the one hand, but also Stadler EURO6000 for use in Spain, France and Portugal.
