Mercitalia Shunting & Terminal 744 101-7 in Udine.
Ordered when the operator was still called SerFer, five EffiShunter 1000 locomotives were delivered by CZ LOKO to Mercitalia Shunting & Terminal this August. It is the first order for CZ LOKO that comprises of new and TSI-compliant locomotives. Up until now, the Italian market has been a market for locomotive modernizations for CZ LOKO.
The locos were delivered at the Udine Depot, where Mercitalia staff was instructed. They will mainly be used for shunting services near Milano, Ravenna and Livorno. By the end of 2018, the locos are expected to enter mainline service too. Of the five locomotives, loco 744 105-8 will be presented at the InnoTrans trade fair in Berlin.
