Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The HXD2 locomotives are a series of related locomotive classes built by CNR Datong Electric Locomotive and Alstom. The locomotives designs are based on the Alstom Prima electric locomotives, and are a product of a cooperation agreement signed between the two companies in 2004. All locomotives are intended for heavy freight work, including coal trains on the Datong Qinhuangdao line. The original HDX2 locomotives are twin unit 2 vehicles whereas the HXD2B and HXD2C versions are single unit Co'Co' machines. At the time of their construction the HDX2 and HDX2B locomotives were amongst the most powerful locomotives in the world. The HXD2C is similarly specified to the HDX2B but of reduced power, and with increased localisation of components for lower cost.show more
