ND2 class diesel locomotive, Hengyang, 1983

ND2 class diesel locomotive, built by Electroputere, Craiova, Romania.

 

The design is essentially Swiss (!). The Romanian locomotive class (060DA) on which the Chinese ND2 class was based was built under license from Sulzer Ltd. and Schweizerische Lokomotiv- und Maschinenfabrik ("Swiss Locomotive and Machine Works").

 

(The class letters "ND" were assigned to imported diesel-electric locomotives. The letters are simply an abbreviation for 内燃电传动, nèirán diànchuándòng, "diesel electric transmission.")

 

1983 July 31.
