THE SERIES EL 16 ASEA THYRISTOR LOCOMOTIVE OF THE NORWEGIAN STATE RAILWAYS

ASEA-THYRISTORLOKOMOTIVE BAUREIHE EL 16 DER NORWEGISCHEN STAATSBAHNEN

This four-axle locomotive weighs 80 tonnes, can reach 140 km/h and has a continuous rating of 4,440 kW. To make the best use of its adhesion qualities, provision is made for continuous regulation, the fitting of direct-current motors with independent excitation and, consequently, individual control of each axle. All sliding surfaces have been avoided in the truck and rubber parts have been used widely.
