DBAG Class 101

The DB Class 101 is a class of three-phase electric locomotives built by Adtranz and operated by DB Fernverkehr in Germany. 145 locomotives were built between 1996 and 1999 to replace the 30-year old and aging Class 103 as the flagship of the DB AG. This class encompasses the latest generation of locomotives of the DB.

In the United States, the ALP-46 locomotive is derived from the DB Class 101. Bombardier's TRAXX shares a common heritage.

Famous quotes containing the word class:

    We believe that Carlyle has, after all, more readers, and is better known to-day for this very originality of style, and that posterity will have reason to thank him for emancipating the language, in some measure, from the fetters which a merely conservative, aimless, and pedantic literary class had imposed upon it, and setting an example of greater freedom and naturalness.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
