The CP Class 2600, nicknamed Nez-Cassée ("broken nose"), is a type of electric locomotive used by Portuguese Railways. They are closely based on the SNCF Class BB 15000 locomotive design. The locomotives were styled by Paul Arzens, designed by a French consortium led by Alsthom and entered service in 1974. Of the 12 built, 9 are still in service in 2012. They have a top speed of 160 km/h.The locomotives are less powerful than the newer CP Class 4700 and 5600 locomotives, sometimes leading to late running on services. As of 2011, CP Carga (the freight division of CP) was able to discontinue using the Class 2600 and 2620 locomotives. As of 2012, it is expected that the remaining locomotives will be withdrawn within the next few years.
