More Siemens Locomotives Pulling Up To RTS’ Stations

Posted on April 8, 2011

Siemens has received a follow-up order to supply a type ES64U4 Eurosprinter multi-system locomotive and a type ER20 Eurorunner diesel locomotive to Rail Transport Service GmbH (RTS) in Graz, Austria. The locomotives will be delivered by this summer, with Siemens also handling the preventive and corrective maintenance.

Counting this new order, RTS will have seven Siemens locomotives – three ES64U4 multi-system locomotives and four ER20 diesel locomotives. The first type 1216 locomotive has covered over 500 000 km, while the diesel locomotive has been in operation for more than 10 000 hours, Siemens said.

RTS is a private railway service company that transports track-laying machines and runs works train services to construction sites in Austria, Germany, Hungary and the Netherlands.
