TGOJ MA Class electric freight locomotive MA966

Photographed on Easter Sunday, 23 March 2008, this Co-Co 3,960 kW locomotive, although very similar to no. 965 shown in picture #3168, is fitted with snow ploughs. As can be seen by the snow on the tracks, western Sweden had snow in the previous few days, in some places with heavy drifting due to strong winds.

All the Ma class locomotives have now been withdrawn from service. This one has been sold to Sveriges Järnvägmuseum (the Swedish national railway museum) at Gävle, on condition that it will never again be used for commercial traffic.
