Orlen KolTrans has added two type 15D locomotives to its fleet. Modernized by Newag from old type TEM2 (SM48) locomotives, the two machines (15D-034 and 035) were officially completed just before the end of 2017 (Mod. 29.12.2017).
The service numbers say it all. The two locos are the 34th and 35th of their type. Earlier, Thirty-three locos have been delivered by Newag to PKP Cargo as ST48-001 - 030, two to ENEA as 15D-031 - 032 and one to Bartex as 15D/A-033. Additionally, Newag delivered the broad gauge version of the 15D, which received the type designation 16D, to PKP LHS (7 locos) and P.U.K. Kolprem (2 locos).
