Most northern line in Europe Editors Pick! Contributor's Pick!       
Each IORE operates with 600 kN tractive effort and has a maximum speed of 80 km/h (50 mph). The 8600-tonne 68-car trains (each with 100 t of ore pellets) are hauled by two single-ended Co'Co' locomotives, each with a power output of 5,400 kW.

Tom Beckett General Beautiful photo of what looks like an interesting operation. All the main line electrified freight lines are gone in the US. This is what it could look like if we only had the foresight to think past the diesel. 9/30/2016 3:19:59 AM
