Who knew it at that time, that that locomotive would be the new Siemens design. And will also be used as the new Belgian diesel loco.

Metro and Urban trains = 1m (more or less)

Regional and Intercity trains usuallu we get anything from 1m down to 50cm ... some even fewer than 50cm ... and there is a place don south where it's so flat out in the soil that there's a special bench acting as a step.

Some old photos of mine (back from 2005) ... the record breaking consisted of 2x CP5600 electric locomotives and 13x corail coaches.

They achieved something like 237km/h with 1 locomotive pulling (the other just went for the ride to assist on braking and provide the role of 14th).

They achieved some confortable 237km/h in those runs ... not the actual record in portugal (wich is of about 248km/h with the pendulinos) but just enough to get the corail coaches certified to daily 200km/h usage (wich was the purpose of the tests).

Some freight trains:





Notice that the Zaes(tankers) are there to serve as linking vehicles ... the locomotives have AAR (american) coupling while the flat container wagons use chain (the Zaes ahve a diferent kind of link in each side)










Notice: only the 1st loco isactually pulling ... the others are there just for the ride (rollingstock shuffling)
