CHITA, January 31. /ITAR-TASS/. It is planned to spend about 17.9 billion rubles on the renewal of the locomotive fleet of the Zabaikalyye (Trans-Baikal) Railway (ZZD) in 2014, a ZZD press service official told Itar-Tass on Friday.
This is almost 300 million rubles more than in 2013.
In all, the locomotive fleet will be replenished with 154 new locomotives. The Russian Railways (RZD) company intends to allocate about 17.4 billion rubles for these purposes. "We expect that 129 main-line freight AC electric locomotives of the Yermak series and 25 shunting diesel locomotives TEM-18dm will arrive at the ZZD proving ground," press service staff member Denis Afonin said.
Another 500 million rubles will be used to modernize the tractive rolling stock.
In 2013, ZZD received 119 Yermak electric locomotives. Twenty-four TEM-18dm diesel locomotives were added to the fleet of shunting locomotives. RZD invested more than 17.5 billion rubles for their purchase. Over 170 million rubles were spent on the modernization of locomotives. The length of TransSib in the ZZD section is 2,266.7 km. The mainline runs across two regions: Zabaikalye Territory and Amur Region.
