Class D445 Bo-Bo diesel locomotive no. 1001

Photographed on 17 October 2012 at the one and only level crossing immediately to the east of Brancaleone railway station, Calabria, Italy. By good fortune, I happened to be held up at the level crossing to wait for this light engine to come past, and had my camera to hand.
This is the very first of the 1st series to be built, in 1974, and is therefore the oldest. Altogether 150 units were built between 1974 and 1988, divided into three series.
The prime mover is a diesel engine produced by FIAT, type A210-12 supercharged with 12 x 90° “V” cylinders with a displacement of 95.7 L (5,840 cu in) that produces 1,560 kW (2,090 hp) at 1500 rpm. The engine is cooled by a forced circulation of cooling fluid through radiators with two hydraulically driven fans. The alternator is controlled by an electronic PWM control unit which is commanded by a 13 step regulator.
