The Traxx DC3 locomotive is the latest generation of high-power electric locomotives that maximizes efficiency, minimizes maintenance interventions, and provides higher load and traction capability with lower energy consumption. One of the most interesting features is the possibility to equip the locomotive with the Last Mile function, allowing new operating concepts through which the locomotive can be used on non-electrified lines, often found in ports, industrial areas, or terminals. The agreement signed for the supply of 20 locomotives includes the option to purchase the Last Mile function according to GTS Rail's discretion. 

“We are extremely proud to have signed this new agreement with GTS Rail, our long-standing customer, and partner. This important contract, confirming a highly successful and valuable collaboration, follows the agreement signed in January 2022 for the supply of five E.494 locomotives equipped with the Last Mile function. All locomotives designed for the Italian market have been and will be produced at Alstom's Vado Ligure site,” says Michele Viale, Managing Director of Alstom Italy and Chairman and CEO of Alstom Ferroviaria.

This new order increases the number of Traxx DC3 - E.494 locomotives in GTS Rail’s fleet to 33 (8 of which are equipped with the Last Mile function), for a total of 45 Alstom locomotives, including Traxx DC2 - E.483.
