Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The ED500 class consisted of a single Bo-Bo wheel arrangement dual voltage AC/DC electric locomotive built experimentally by Hitachi Ltd. in Japan. The design was derived from the DC Bo-Bo-Bo wheel arrangement Class EF200 also built by Hitachi, and was intended to replace Class ED75 locomotives on T hoku Main Line freight services. The locomotive was loaned to JR Freight for testing, but the design was not selected for full production due to problems with restarting a single Bo-Bo wheel arrangement locomotive on the 25 gradients of the T hoku Main Line and in the Seikan Tunnel. The Class EH500 articulated Bo-Bo+Bo-Bo design was ultimately chosen instead.show more
