  • Description

    Reported to be the biggest and most powerful railway locomotive in the world, the "D-m-3" has gone into service pulling iron-ore wagons from Kiruna in Swedish Lappland to Narvik, Norway.

    Built by ASEA (Sweden) in co-operation with Swedish State Railways, the 65-tons "D-m-3" is in three sections, totalling 35-metres in length. Its five engines - each as strong as one normal locomotive - develop a pulling power of 80,000 kgms against the 65,000 kgms of the previous strongest locomotive owned by Swiss State Railways.

    Fully loaded the "D-m-3" pulls 65-ore wagons - a train of 438 metres in length, and weighing more than 5,135-tons.
