The only gas locomotive in the world
The designers of Kuznetsov’s Samara scientific and technical complex create the aviation engine — the «heart» of a new machine. Fuel for gas locomotive is ecologically pure natural gas. The advantage is the absence of necessity to build an electric power line. Thus the capacity of a locomotive of the future is comparable with the best samples of current technology.
The development of Samara designers can be called unique. Some foreign countries have already been interested in it. It may happen that, gas locomotives will travel about not only Russian railways, but also foreign ones.
