CZ LOKO has released a sneak peek of EffiShunter 1000 locomotive 744 101-7 in SerFer livery on its Facebook page. In light of the Expo Ferroviaria 2017 rail fair, the Czech manufacturer will present the loco at the nearby Trenord depot Milano Fiorenza.
In April 2017, CZ LOKO was awarded an order by SerFer for the delivery of five EffiShunter 1000 locomotives with an option for five more. The fully TSI-compliant diesels will be equipped with Caterpillar C32 engines, delivering 895 kW. The locos will have a maximum speed of 100 km/h and will be equipped with the Italian train protection system BL3, enabling their use on shunting and mainline operations. Deliveries are scheduled to commence in February 2018.
