Two-section mainline diesel locomotive TG16M is designed to operate on 1,067/1,520 mm gauge railways in a temperate climate.

Locomotive is equipped with advanced motor 12DM-21L with improved indicators of efficiency and environmental friendliness (produced by Ural Diesel Motor Plant LLC, Ekaterinburg).


  •  The locomotive is highly reliable and has better traction properties in comparison with TG16 diesel locomotives.

  •  It is equipped with advanced hydraulic transmission L530breU2 (Voith Turbo, Germany)

  •  Modular cooling systems are applied.

  •  The locomotive has a microprocessor-based monitoring, control and diagnostic system MPSUiD.

  •  Модульная кабина машиниста обеспечивает гидропередачи, микроклиматом и тепловозом в целом. (Modular driver's cab ensures operation of hydraulic transmission, a microclimate system and a diesel locomotive in general)

  •  Improved labor conditions for locomotive crews.

  •  Bogie frame is unified for track gauges of 1,067 and 1,520 mm due to the possibility of adjusting wheel pairs.
