New locomotive: ASEA Dm/Dm3

Dm and Dm3 locomotives were built by the Swedish company ASEA, and have been running in Sweden and Norway since 1953 pulling huge ore trains. These where originally double-headed locomotives (named Dm), with low speed but high power engines designed to pull heavy ore convoys. Later in the sixties, several central engines where built to increase their power rate (being then three-headed locos, and named Dm3). Most of this trains are to be retired and replaced by the new IORE models during the next few years.

The real specifications for this locomotives are (taken from wikipedia):
  • Units built: 20 Dm, 19 Dm3 (for a total of 97 engines)
  • Total unit length: 25.100 m (Dm), 35.250 m (Dm3)
  • Weight: 190 t (Dm), 273.2 t (Dm3)
  • Top speed: 75 km/h
  • Power output: 2400 kW per engine; 4800 kW (Dm), 7200 kW (Dm3)
