“Progress Rail, through our historic EMD brand, delivered our first meter-gauge locomotive to Bangladesh Railway in 1953,” said Progress Rail CEO Billy Ainsworth. “Since then, we have supplied more than 150 meter-gauge locomotives directly and through partners to the region. We are honored to be chosen again by the railway to assist in the future growth and development of Bangladesh, this time with an important focus on the broad-gauge rail network.”
“The 40 broad-gauge locomotives will be critical to the growth and improved efficiency of Bangladesh Railway,” Additional Director General Rolling Stock of Bangladesh Railway Md Shamsuzzaman said. “Progress Rail has supplied locomotives to Bangladesh Railways for more than 60 years, and we look forward to working with Progress Rail on the delivery of these 40 state-of-the-art locomotives.”
