As part of the work allocation between diesel and electric traction based on profitability criteria, diesel traction has been given a viable role in the context of the current programme for standard tractive units. The assigned objective of diesel traction is to adapt this model- programme to the requirements of future tasks by producing improved turbines and engines, by developing three phase-power transmission and electric heating, by replacing the two-axle railcar with 614 and 617-type units. Replacement of shunting locomotives types 260 and 261 by cardan-drive units should by considered.
