Green Cargo Rc2 Bo-Bo electric locomotive

Photographed in the Skandiahamnen marshalling yard, Gothenburg as the sun was setting on 3 March 2008. 1101 was built in 1973.
Length: 15.520 m, Service weight: 76.8 tonnes
Power: 3,600 kW, Max. speed: 135 km/h
Manufactured by: Asea, 1969-1975, Number built: 100
Original number series: 1027-1056, 1067-1136 (several rebult to Rc3)
This is one of the second generaton of Rc locomotives, used for all types of traffic. They were modernised in the 1990s with new air intakes, and 30 or so were rebuilt to Rc3 with gearing for higher speeds. The remainder were transferred from SJ to Green Cargo in 2001, and later painted green (instead of the original blue, see the Rc2 1038 behind this one).
