Bombardier TRAXX MS3 Platform
The TRAXX platform features cutting-edge electronics as well as improved mechanics. This results in better performance, e.g. the locomotive’s power and tractive effort. There are also advantages with regards to energy efficiency and maintenance. Bombardier says its MS3 locomotive is the first and only locomotive of this type capable of being equipped with the last mile function. Of course, its DC3 locomotive also offers this capability.
The third TRAXX generation builds on previous TRAXX models. According to Bombardier there are more than 2,000 TRAXX locomotives in operation in 20 countries. Importantly, there is a good network of workshops across Europe, which ensure that the locomotives are always operational. Bombardier also offers a multi-lingual support hotline that is always open.
“The outstanding performance of the TRAXX locomotives is also due to our strong services support. We offer condition-based maintenance where the locomotive’s most important systems are supervised online, which enables us to predict and prevent component failures. We also offer many other digital tools, spare part management, upgrades, overhauls and crash repairs.”
