I wouldn't consider the 252 as new anymore since the design is already 20 years old.

And when it comes to Europe we can change the title into new locomotives from the main manufactures.

Witht the new Bombardier Traxx AC3 as one of the most recent developments. The newest version of the Traxx is visually a complete remake of the very successful platform. It got a new front, moving away from the standard DB shape of the previous versions.

On the inside the most interesting change is that this electrical locomotive will have a "last mile" diesel engine. The 240 kW strong engine should be able to work for 8 hours before refueling. With this engine it will be able to shunt on it's own at tracks without overhead wire, abolishing the need for separate shunting locomotives.

The "launch costumer" is Railpool that will lease the 1st locomotives out to the BLS from Switzerland in 2013.

The fastest 6 axle locomotive should be the 280 km/h BR 103: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DB_Class_103

The new platform by Siemens is called "Vectron"




www.railcolor.net/

Also as a diesel version.




www.railcolor.net/

Leasing company has ordered 6 of these locomotives to be delivered in 2012.


The NMBS and the CP have ordered similar locomotives, but these are predecessors to the Vectron.




www.railcolor.net/


btw, this site has a good overview of modern locomotives in Europe:

Brand new locomotives from your country (Or any country)

I'll start off with the new Eurolight by Vossloh, a very light but strong locomotive at only 77.5 metric tonnes and a top speed of 200 kph, aswell as a 2800 kw (3750 hp) engine

Plus you can at the very least say whether a loco is diesel or electric.

At 2800 kW it for sure is a diesel... Vossloh doesn't do electrics AFAIK.

Electric trains also show performance in kW... i don't wanna play detective.
