Hector Rail buys eight Rc locos from SJ AB

Hector Rail bought all 13 locos which SJ AB sold at an auction last week. Five locos will be resold, implying a net addition of eight locos to Hector Rail’s fleet. The fleet will thereafter total 59 locos. The locos bought are so called Rc3 locos. They were built in the early 1970-ies. The maximum speed is 160 km/h.

Hector Rail has systematically expanded its loco fleet since it was founded 10 years ago. The strategy has been to offer its customers the most optimal resource for their traction needs. Hector Rail’s fleet includes powerful six axle locos previously used for iron ore transport, Sweden’s fastest locos designed for speeds of up to 230 km/h and specially equipped locos for seamless international transports between Sweden and Germany through Denmark.

Hector Rail has grown every year since the start and currently needs to further increase its fleet. SJ’s Rc3 locos became an attractive solution to satisfy this need.

The Rc locos are well established in the Swedish market. There is good supply of maintenance and operational resources. Within Hector Rail, these locos will become type 143.
