Apparently it's metre gauge, according to Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rail_t...rt_in_Malaysia

Does the 3M62 from Russia count as "giant"?



The M62 series locomotives were produced 1965-1994 by Voroshilovgrad Locomotive Factory (Lugansk, Ukraine). The single section locomotive (M62) was used in all of the USSR countries and even outside it. In Poland it was known as ST44, in Germany - BR120, Czech Republic - class 781, Hungary - M62, Cuba - M-62K, Mongolia - M62 and North Korea - 내연6xx(Naeyŏn 6xx)).

The M62 also came as double section locomotive, but I guess since this is the "giant" locomotive thread, then the three section locomotive would fit better here.

Each seaction is a Co-Co locomotive, with 1472kW (1974hp). So the triple section one has almost 6000hp (please correct me, I couldn't find exact data on the 3M62 and I'm just guessing).

I'd go with 4TE116U four-section locomotive (made from two 2TE116U locomotives). Power should be 14'400 hp or 10'700 kW.


EDIT: BTW It is only photoshop of the numner Actually it's just 2 2TE116U locomotives together.

In real life 3TE116U is the largest one

Power should be 10 800 hp or 8 025 kW

I thought so since the TE locomotives (single ones) are more powerfull then M62 (TE10 has about 2`500hp, while M62 has about 2`000hp).
