The Class E656 nicknamed "Caimano" is a series of Italian articulated, electric locomotives built from 1973 to 1989. An evolution of the E646/5, they are all-purpose locomotives, and have been used on every kind of train, ranging from freight to intercity passenger trasport. The hull is divided in two parts, each one with its own twin axle bogie, plus a central bogie in the middle. Initially, the locomotive's top speed was set to 160 km/h, but was reduced to 150 km/h later, due to stability problems. Recently many E656s have been transferred to the Cargo Division of Trenitalia to haul freight trains, because of which the locomotives recieved a reduced gear ratio, and their speed limit was lowered to 120 km/h.
