New locomotive: Renfe Serie 333

The Renfe Series 333 is a high power diesel locomotive built in the 70s. There was the need of a diesel locomotive capable of pulling both express passenger trains and heavy goods convoys, and also a speed of at least 120 Km/h was desired.

This locomotive, with a power of 2462 KW and reaching up to 150 Km/h was the solution. It has been one of the most powerful locomotives running along the spanish railways for many years.

The real specifications for this vehicle are (taken from the El Ferrocarril, in spanish):
  • Units built: 94
  • Total length: 20.7 m
  • Total weight: 120 t
  • Top speed: 150 Km/h
