Link to the pictures?
I don't know if they've been posted anywhere...
I was forwarded the e-mail press release which included seven low res images...
The press release itself didn't give any technical detail nor did it give details of operators.
It did emphasise that the locomotives were suitable for narrow and broad gauge operation.
NREC Introduces the Multi Engine Locomotive to Australia
National Railway Equipment Company (NREC) is adding to the existing Australian NREC fleet with a total of 9 locomotives due into Australia in throughout 2013. The first two 1200 class locomotives arrived in Newcastle this week.
The newest NREC arrival are the 1200 Class Multi Engine 3GS24C-DE-AU N-ViroMotive Locomotives - introducing a new, fuel efficient, flexible, quiet technology to the Australian Rail industry.
NREC is the world’s largest multi-engine locomotive manufacturer with over 300 NREC Multi-Engine Locomotives in operation worldwide today. NREC’s founder, the late Lawrence J. Beal had a vision to successfully integrate the N-ViroMotive Locomotives into Australia and NREC has now delivered the latest innovation locomotives to the Australian rail industry.
The latest delivery 1200 class N-ViroMotive locomotives to Australia are supplied in Standard Gauge configuration but can be readily be converted to left or right hand driving positions and have the ability to operate in narrow, standard or broad gauge configuration. This changeability is made possible by NREC’s focus on flexible design, and allows the N-ViroMotive locomotive to uniquely operate in all states of Australia.
NREC has strategically positioned the N-ViroMotive locomotive specifically for Regional Australia to fit a rail market that requires low cost, and reliability as core criteria to encourage investment in rolling stock for Regional Australia. The N-ViroMotive locomotive have been optioned with latest technology such as AESS, rear Facing CCTV and remote download capability are included in NREC Locomotives as standard.
NREC is currently working with several Australian clients on variations of the multi-engine locomotive to meet their specific operational needs.
