|G1700 BB Triple|
|Award From||Strange Package ||Limit||∞|
| The Vossloh G1700 BB is a four axle diesel-hydraulic locomotive manufactured by Vossloh Locomotives GmbH. in Kiel. The locomotive is operated by private rail operators in Germany and Austria. In addition, a large order from the Swiss Federal Railway resulted in a variation of the locomotive, designated Am843, now also operated by other rail companies in Switzerland. Locomotives came equipped with a Caterpillar engine for Swiss railways, or an MTU prime mover for the rest of operators. The Swiss railway operators ordered 59 G1700 type locomotives in total, but their design specified very low emissions, so the version built for Switzerland had to have a particulate filter built in.|
