Test drives of ČD Cargo’s TRAXX locomotives

On Tuesday, June 23, 2020, trial operation of the locomotive series 388 ČD Cargo on the lines of Správa železnic began. For the first time ever, the 388.001 engine set off from Ústí nad Labem to Klášterec nad Ohří and back. So far, the locomotives have been tested separately.

"One locomotive must travel 40,000 kilometres in trial operation in freight transport and ten thousand kilometres in passenger transport," said Tomáš Tóth, Executive Director of ČD Cargo. That’s why it will be possible to see the new locomotives also at the head of the Czech Railways trains.
