It seems the final hour of 1822-002
is there. The locomotives, originally built for the Austrian state railways, are being scrapped. The PCC colored 232 series diesel locomotive is first in row, but 002 and 005 are next. Currently the machines are property of DB Schenker Rail Polska, striving for a more homogenous fleet and that wants to get rid of smaller, special series. - PS / spz.logout.cz
In 1990-1991, SGP from Austria built 5 such locomotives for international services in Austria and Italy. ABB and ELIN were responsible for the electrical part of the machines. The type never went into production. The arrival of the, much cheaper, Taurus family only few years later meant the end of this so calld 'Splittergattung' in Austria. 1822 002 and 005 were sold to Poland. 1822 001, 003 and 004 are still in Austria. They are currently parked at Wolfurt, waiting for things to come.
