Siemens locomotives ES64F4 are the first machines of this type in the fleet.

A part of the EPH Group since 2015, LokoTrain has significantly expanded its fleet over the past six months. It has acquired a total of seven new machines, either by purchase or on loan. In total, LokoTrain now offers 20 locomotives.

Two Siemens ES64F4 locomotives (189.155 from Akiem, 390.001 from ZOS Zvolen) are the first machines of this type in the fleet. LokoTrain intends to use them within the holding, which includes EP Cargo among others.

Traxx 2 and Traxx DC3 (Last Mile) locomotives have been leased from Akiem. A Vectron on loan from Alpha Train will also be available to LokoTrain customers. The company was steered into the largest expansion of its fleet to date by an ever-increasing demand for medium and short-term rentals.

LokoTrain is not the only expanding company within the holding. For the Hungarian branch of EP Cargo, EPH Group has acquired an Alstom Astride locomotive (leased from Akiem) and a 742.400 class locomotive (purchased from ZOS Zvolen). The holding acquired 30 Uacs wagons for bulk products, eleven Tads-y and twenty Eas/Eaos wagons for agricultural products for the Polish market this year. Close to 40 new wagons are intended for construction logistics in the Czech Republic and abroad.
