Swedish Diesels - Modern

Three T TMZ
No I don't take any drugs, but I was on my way to my daily work in a hurry and there was a strange sun rise. Anyway a latest variation of colors on a former DSB Mz. Lets wait and see if anyone comes up with somthing that really looks good. Mora 2006-12-20.

MV TMZ 1403
This handsome painted TMZ was caught in Orsa while switching cars with TMY 1122 in 17th of September 2005. The unit is owned by Motala Verksam but leased or as it is claimed operated by Vägverket, the state authoroty of maintainence of public highways.

MV TMZ 1403
Ever wondered how a EMD SD 40-2 would look like in Europe? It would have a to be a cowl unit with cabs at each ends and the fuel capacity a bit less to able to ride on slimmer rail sizes.
One of the more pleasant suprices of 9th of October 2005 was to find a rather unique double header in Mora. Actually I saw this train rolling in to Orsa on the otherwise unused line from Furudalen. The units TMZ 1403 and TMZ 1404 were handling a long string of empty 4 axle flat cars which was used to haul logs from south Sweden to available saw mills along the northern part of the country. Compared to EMD 567 powered units of NoHAB.s of TMY and TMX classes, these beasts are more silent but the trembeling ground can not hide that these engines are allmost twice as powerful.

MV TMZ 1404
The TMZ 1404 was the second unit on this lash up. Note that the design of the 1970.s features pretty much boxy appearent. What I understand these class of unit has interchangeble cabs so the modified cabs on these units did not need as much of surgery than what is more usual. Orignally the early units like these two had much more windows, which are replaced with bullet proof windows.

Three T TMZ 1407
The Three T has repainted at least one unit in new rather striking scheme which effectively enchange the former DSB Mz 1407.s boxy shape. While the earlier versions of DSB units are now withdrawn from DSB and some of the later sisters sold to Australia and the rest now part of DB-Schenker fleet. Still a few have been sold to Sweden and its impressive 16 cylinder 645 engine at 3300 hp reverbs the ground when the big unit is idleing.
Mora 2012-03-30.

The latest engine on InlandGods is this, a TMZ 1409, recently repainted in InlandGods paint. The InlandGods has for the container unit trains used leased TMZ engines instead of the more photogenic pair of TMY/TMX.s. Mora 2007-02-12.

Tågab TMZ 1409
InlandGods quit the business but the TMZ 1409 which was built in 1969 still carries InlandGods paint. It is now owned by Tågab and seen here by the IBAB hub in Östersund.
Östersund 2012-08-05.

SIT TMZ 1413
The largest mainline in Sweden diesel is the ex dane TMZ 1413 (former DSB Mz 1413). The unit is infact the first of the second generation Danish NoHabs in service in Sweden. With V16 EMD 645 with a turbocharger pumping 3000 hp, the engine is more or less European version of EMD.s big selling SD40/SD 40-2.s.

SIT TMZ 1413
This unit is hard to catch in Mora as the container trains usually gets here in well after sun down. They occationally runs this train also in the morning, but guess what, those days appearently happens when I don't have the camera with me. But I was lucky to catch this unit in MOra while preparing its run with empties back to Sweg. Mora 6th March 2005.

SIT TMZ 1413
Mostly during the winter of 2004-2005 the container trains were hauled by Tmz 1413, and whie it was in shops, the train was powered by a pair of eariler generation of Nohab power. Here 13. April 2005, the unit has just arrived to Mora and there seem to be a small mechanical bug as the unit refused to move. But the crew handeled the stressed situation and could make it on its own to the other end of the yard to be coupled to allmost identical set of empties back to Sweg.
SJ T44s and Rc 4 1196
Only some years ago...
It is amaizing how time changes, Here is a view fråm Rättvik in the early 1990.es, the Rc4 1196 is sitting in the hole in the yars, waiting for the pulwoodtrain powered by usual set of pair of T44.s. Today, the Rc is propably either in blue or green paint, the T44.s on timbertrain are replaced by a Rc. The yard was "cleaned up" from unused rail, so all those sidings barely visible here are gone too.
SJ T44 Helper?
IC trains helper?
Prior IBAB took operations the line was served by T44.s. And once a week the pair were replaced by another pair from Borlänge Terminal. This day, there seem not been a window to send the engines by their own. So they were coupled behind a IC-train for Stockholm and added an extra muscle or two. This poor quality image was taken at the section house of Garsås in mid nineties.
CG T44 266
CG T44 266 at Borlänge 16/7 2003
The long production time of T44 caused different phases, such as the later ones were equipped with full sets of stanchions around the walkways of the units. Also the during the time the engines has been modified to make them even more flexible. One such is radiocontrol which makes the switching crews to a minimum. T44 266 still has not received a full set of stanchions around the unit, but equipped for remote controll and new decals making it one of the "bandits" in Green Cargo roster.

The same engine in Borlänge 14.th Oct. 2003.

IBAB? T44 274
New power on the Inlandline in April 2003. The new power is a T44, that has the former owners logos patched over and used with the TMX.s or sometimes solely as power on the unit trains.

GC T44 277
During the winter of 2004 - 2005 Borlänge seem to host a more than a few of still orange T44 bandits. This one has received some later schemes trim in yellow, like footsteps and railings, but very much in basic later version of orange scheme. The rain seem to have washed most of the grime away, but will do nothing but highlight the well weathered cab roof of the unit. The unit stayed at the same spot for several days and its duties have been handeled by a blue sister unit after some kind of failure.
Date 26th of January 2005.

GC T44 277
Just a few days later the unit is again active. Now together with a sister it works the yard, transfer and branch line duties with a blue painted sister. Today the busy yard is even more busy, as an army special train is been switched to freight platform tracks to ease the unloading. From there the caravan of motley engineering troop vehicles take the final 50 - 60 kilometers north to trängslet by highway. 7th of February 2005.

Just 5 days later on 12th, the military service is finally over and the orange bandit was found at the engine terminal in Borlänge.

GC T44 281
The duties of T44.s in Mora is a bit more than just yard swichting, it als includes tranfer runs from the industries and the timber terminal at the west end of the town and also some branch line power on Älvdalen line, where it hauls mostly few loads of woodchips to the mills in south part of Dalecarlia and at south of the country. Today T44 281 is in town as it replaces its still orange sister T44 277 as it has some kind of mechanical trouble. T 44.s have provided good service but they are not getting younger and some units are close to being 40 years old withing a few years.
Date 26th of January 2005.

GC T44 281
In 4th of October 2006 an early version GC T44, T44 281 is handling the yard and transfer duties in Mora.
Date 26th of January 2005.

GC T44 286
Close to Hemus, just north of Mora on the Alvdalen line, T44 286 is slowly taking its consist of wood chip cars to saw mill further up the line.
Date 8th of January 2007.

GC T44 281
The oldest T44 in Borlänge that day T44 281 was appearently in need of some attention from the service crew at the Borlänge terminal in 23 March 2006.

T44.s south of Helvetesfallet.

A road power of T44.s in Mora 1990.
T44.s on unit train along Inlandsbanan.

Prior IBAB took operations the line was served by T44.s. The unit trains of peat briquettes were hauled in leased Fals-type cars from DB and SCNB, and in some other design of cars, all 4-axle heavy duty cars.

When IBAB took over the operations the peat was loaded in secondhand 20' containers and 4-axle cars are used. During the winter 2002/2003 more and more older 2-axle containercars are also used, a single heavy container is loaded in the middle of the car. In older designs of 4-axle cars, the containers are loaded right on top of the trucks, while in new cars the cars are loaded with three containers and using the most of the 60' loading platform.

All of the types used in the beginning of this operation.

GC T44 330/h5>
I guess once in a while some units are rotarated between the verious termials in Sweden, at least this T44 330 is the new kid in the block, and was soon joined in by a Borlänge veteran T44 401 as the units were parked near the shcks or modern barracks used as crew lounge at the northern throat of the huge Borlänge yard.

SJ T44 337.

CG T44 337 in Borlänge 2003.
SJ T44 337, the oddball.
The T44 337 is the oddball of the T44 fleet, as it was repainted in the first variation of the current standard of blue. The other engine this way is the oddball of the RC.s RC6 1377 as it was orginally painted in two shades of lightgrey with letteting in blue along with a blue stripe, as test for the X2000 livery. It was repainted in rather handsome variation with ligtblue graphics on the mchine roof. If they had droped the idea of white regonition stripe on the front this variation would been nice. The T44 got more economical simple variation of the scheme. It is still painted like this and note the paintjob also includes the side window frames repainted to black. Perhaps this is a reaction of that date custom car painting as crome parts were repainted to black.

Overhead views on SJ T44 337.

The second pic, the unit is parked outside the engine termianal of Borlänge in 15.th of March in 2003.

GC T44 337 - IBAB TMX 1016
T44 337 is asigned as a switcher at Mora in 27. March 2004.
In the mean while, IBAB crews are switching their freights at the yard. The IBAB unit is TMX 1016.

GC T44 337
T44 337 has bben an odd ball since it was the first repainted engine in the new blue paint along with Rc5 1377. The Rc unit got more fame as its paint scheme was more detailed while The one on t44 has lasted long after the electric got repainted to match its sisters. T44 377 was i guess the last asigned T44 in Borlänge while its sisters were repainted and rebuilt in to Td-class. In early 2011, it was looking like an orphan in its worn out paint making a stark contrast to the sea of green painted newly arrived Td.s. Still some V5.s in Borlänge are wearing its original orange and blue paint. Borlänge 2011-04-27 & 2011-05-11

GC T44 347
Another unit painted in original orange is CG T44 347 which was caught lazing in brief moment of sunshine in Östersund in 6th of June 2005.

GC T44 347
As a proof that the T44 does travel, as T44 347 seem to feel like home among other T44.s in switching pool in Dalecarlia. Here as one of the last in original orange paint at Borlänge 11th March 2006.

GC T44 353
It is now rather uncommon to see units decked out in orange paint, but among Green Gargos fleet of diesels there a few still in old paint, like this T44 353 at Örebro busy heading to a sur to pick up an empty flat car, first before getting there the crew has to lower the barricades over the busy street and realign the switch after passing it. Örebro 2007-03-13

GC T44 359
There seem to be still quite a few orange painted T44.s in Green Gargo roster. Today 2. day of March 2005, GC T44 359 is enjoying the spring sun in Mora.

GC T44 381
The Borlänge engine pool provides T44.s for the local switching and some branchline duties in Mora. In last weeks of May, The "Blue Bandit" T44 381 was assigned to Mora, along V5 187.

Same engine in Borlänge july 2003.

GC T44 381
During the first days of february the T44 381 was asigned to switching and transfer duty in Mora. 2. Febr 2004.

GC T44 383
T44 383 used as a heavy switcher in Borlänge. They handle all kinds of switching and transfer runs, except hump duty, which is the Rc1 teritory.

A Green Cargo T44 401 is busy switching in Mora in August of 2003. Love that weathering...

GC T44 401
I guess that the GC T44 401 holds up the designation of being the most weathered unit on GC roster. Some six months after the image above was shot, still unwashed in condition that most modellers would be proud of. as it rests on New Years EVE 2004.

GC T44 401
It is still a quiet an peaceful around T44 401, but whithin n hour she will be fired up and get another train loasd of timber west of Mora to be delivered to a waiting power. Afterthat one more trip to the terminal to deliver a lenghty consist of empties. After that a scenic trip to Älvdalen to get a few loads of wood chips in moderate pace. Mora 23 November 2006

GC Rc4 1117 -Rc2 1042 - T44 401
Change of guards
Every now and thenthe T44.s in Mora are exchanged with a new serviced unit from Borlänge. This time the exchange is on a Friday when T44 401, dead in tow will have its turn on switching, locals and some transfer duty in Mora. The first duty will be no doubt be delivery of the empty timber racks to the timber terminal a few kilometers on the former Inland line section south of Mora. 2007-02-02.

GC T44 401
It is time to do some industrial switching west of Mora and the T44 4o1 is crossing the streat at Morastrand on its way to work,

GC T44 401
Though the dark clouds of the international finansial crises are looming the business is good on the Green Cargo freight operations in Borlänge using three crew at least on thiss Thursday afternoon. The operation of switching is using the RC1 eectrics on hunp and some freight service while using T44.s and smaller C5 class on flat land and industrial service.
Borlänge 2009-02-26.

GC T44 402
Borlänge is the main terminal in Dalecarlia with a large yard equipped with hump, large engine terminal and various shops. To maintain the flood of traffic at least the idea of it, the yard requires a large number of swichunits. One of the typical are the T44, V5.s and modified engines of the Rc1.s. Here T44 402 in mid march 2003, not it is still "unbandited" in with full SJ sceme and logos. Despite this it is part of GC roster.

GC T44 402
T44.s are the work horses of allmost any kind of freight duties, switching, transfers, industries, and branch line powers. In many ways yu can see the hard service these engines for the owners SJ and now GC has over the years. Still there are very few green repainted T44.s and none has been spotted here in northern Dalecarlia.

GC T44 403 in Borlänge

GC T44 403 in Mora
Three T44.s in three different looks. First Bandit T44 403 followed by a sister still decked out with SJ logos and the oddball T44 337.
Photo in Borlänge 15.th of March 2003.

In the summer the same unit was stationed in Mora and busy switching unit train of pulpwood in July 2003.

The blue scheme on T44.s seem to bleach of to nice weathering. But the fact is that though the T44.s are considered as the latest class of diesel power in Sweden, the youngest are more than 20 years old.

GC T44 403
T44 403 and all the T44.s and V5,s asigned in Dalecarlia calls Borlänge terminal as their home. The yard uses T44.s side by side with Rc1.s on transfer and switching duties but the hump is now using the Rc1.s. Date: 29th of July 2005 .

GC T44 403
T44 403 is like the mast majority still painted in former SJ blue, with a new set of decals to make it a blue bandit it sits at Borlänge terminal next to its orange bandit sister T44 347 in 11. March 2006.

T44 403 has finished her shift at the ever busy yard of Borlänge and couple together with a sister unit T44 407 rolls in slowly to the terminal. 13. Mary 2006.

GC T44 403
A look on the various tasks of the Mora switchers here is a couple pics, only some 60 minutes between them. First the T44 403 is hauling empty train set of timber cars to the timber terminal a few kilometers west of town. Just another hour later, the same engine is heading on Älvdalen line with a local, consisting the engine and wood chip cars. Mora 2007-02-12.

The third picture shows the engine back at Mora yard, waiting for jump in as a switcher. Mora 2007-02-13.

GC T44 404
Bandit T44 404 in the other side of the terminal near the hump. The engines are to repainted like the green Rc 4 1251 to the right within few years. The Green Cargo has been so far slow with repaints on its diesel fleet while the electrics in green are increasingly common.
Photo in Borlänge 15.th of March 2003 and the second July 2003.

GC T44 404
T44 404 with a cut of cars of wood chips from the Älvdalen line is near the Mora Strand flagstop on its way to the yard of Mora just about less than a kilometer further to east. At this very point is were the former Inland line merges with Älvdalen line. The scenic Älvdalen line is surviving much because of this daily except Saturday and sunday service. But once or twice a year the line operates the longest passenger train of all in the country, the yearly special train for the womens race of Vasaloppet to Oxberg. 20 cars are not incommon and are in hands of two or three T44.s. Date 3. February 2005

GC T44 404
One of the result of the trouble from the suddently changing weather in the very sparsly used line from Mora to Älvdalen in the middle of the town of Mora. Streets was barricaded by the train and a large mobile crane was needed to lift the engine T44 404 back on the rails. The poor quality has to do I shot these while slowly running my car...

GC T44 405
Sometimes life is just grand, as we pulled up next to a siding to shoot at whatever the switching crew parked this T44 right on the right spot in Borlänge Date 4th of March 2004.

The T44 406 at Borlänge 16/7 2003

GC T44 406
Visiting the huge yard of Borlange is not a great idea if you are looking for some freight action, actually the only thing going on during my visit was this T44 shuffling some timber cars and after a run around the engine and the loaded cars headed to north. Borlange 2007-04-07.

GC T44 406
The day is over and it is a weekend lull ahead, today was aunusually slow dayas it was a national holiday, so T44 406 seem to have it a little cozy there. Mora 2009-05-01.

GC T44 406
Allmost a year later, T44 406 is asigned again in Mora as yard swithcher again but there has been some changes, as the wood chip containers has been switched over night to Innofreight designed containers. Mora 2010-03-23.

A couple of more images on now Green Cargo owned unit in Mora in mars 2003. There are a smallnumber of changes here, as the AC-box has been repainted to matching black color.

CG T44 408
The T44 408 as in September 2003. It was active as a switcher in Mora. The engine is seen busy while switching the following days early IC to Stockholm. The power for the passanger is Rc6 1337.

GC T44 408
T44 408 is asigned in Mora as yard swithcher in first day of July in 2005 and in the following pics it is resting at the northern ladder tracks of Borlänge 22th August 2005.

GC T44 408
T44 408 is asigned again in Mora as yard swithcher and handle timber transfer duties and make a local run on the Älvdalen line with a some cars with wood chip containers. Still there is time for a break in the afternoon. I guess the following asignment is deliver a cut of empty cars to the saw mill just east of town and return with loads back to the yard. Mora 2009-03-22.

SJ T44 409
Still in the 1990-es the depot at Mora.Noret was still in use, at least somewhat, and it was common to see diesel power parked outside the fairly modern facility. The T44 409 still sports its factory paint schem and lettering.

Extra images

GC T44 409
Some ten years later, same engine just a few hundred yards away at the main yard in Mora. New color in the new millenium. But during the SJ days the engine received a bit of extra attention and today in GC service the engine is grimy and the new paint has become pale...

GC T44 409
It is a day before the Christmas eve and even the T44 409 seem to have taken slow to enjoy the holiday.
Mora 2006-12-23.

GC T44 409
Still in early 2007 it is rare to see a green painted Diesel of the GC roster. But compared that image above the snow does a great job to make the paint look a bit better. Here the unit T 44 409 is hurring to couple up to the newly arrived consist of empty timber cars.

T44 409 is slowly rolling to east to the Mora yard. It has been switching on the west end of the town which is based on the former south stretch of the now closeed Inland line between Mora and south.
Mora 2009-02-10 .

SJ T44 411
The next generation of SJ diesels are the roadswitchers of T44.s. From the beginning they were designed for both mainline and switching duties in mind. As they were designed, EMD had introduced their 645-line and the new generation of engines became powerplants for the Swedish Roadswitchers. I have seen occationanlly pull in three unit lashups containertrains on Inland line prior IBAB take over, these are the most common diesels in Sweden. Photo in Mora in summer of 2001 and the two below July 2003.

On the second image the engine is sitting on main track of Mora as the yard is crowded, to add more commotion, a pulp wood empty has arrived to town and exchange train sets with the diesel. Mora 9. October 2005.

GC T44 411
T44 411 is running slowly through the downtown of Mora not far from Mora Strand flagstop on its way to the main yard with cut of empty flat cars. Appearently there has been quite a few or these cars are to be set as storage as this direction it is more common with loaded cars. The T44.s in Mora are used not only as yard switchers but also for Timber transfer runs and for the Älvdalen line. 13. of February 2006.

GC T44 411
T44 411 is here rolling back from local industrial switching or after delivery of empty timber cars to the timber terminal west of town. The catenary starts some 100 meters ahead at Morastrand passanger stop, and it will slowly with full lights roll to the final 500 meters to the yard. Mora 2009-05-13.

GC T44 415
It is the first national day in history in 2005 and it is actually a holliday. This means a little if any work for the yard switchers in Östersund. One of the unit relaxing was T44 415 still in orange.

GC T44 416
Once the orange was very common griding on Swedish rails but in 6th of November 2004 this is a bit of small sensation to see T44 in original colors. As the SJ is no longer in freight business, the hood unit is now one of the last Green Cargo units in orange. Green Cargo has been busy to repaint its fleet of electric road units of Rc2 and Rc4, but the yard and branch line diesels in vast majority carries SJ blue, only one so far has been repainted in green.

ASEA T45 327
ASEA developed in the early 1970.s few protoytpes of diesels that were leasesd a number of years to SJ and after the lease expired, sold of to heavy industries in Sweden and Norway. The railroad museum of preserved one unit that has been stored at GDJmf in Falun.

ASEA T45 327
T45 is out in the sun during a open house of GDJmf. The T45 looks at the first glance like a the more common T44.s. But looking at the Rc look alike trucks and a plenty other details you will note the difference. Falun 27. August 2006.

BV ex. SJ Tb
One of the most odd looking motive of power are the Tb and Tc class plow engines. Tc is basicly a T21 with a different bodies for the winter plow duties, while the heavier Tb is riding on trucks. During the summers, the plows are removed and they are used for power various MoW. duties over the BV network. Photo in Ånge, August 2003.

BV ex. SJ Tb
The Tc.s are smaller but does share the same looks. Here a couple in Mora-Noret in different versions of BV safety yellow in 28.th May 2003.

BV QTB 284

IBAB TMX 1016 & BV QTB 284
As a second unit with IBAB TMX 1016 this large ex TB-class unit looks odd and very massive. This unit seem to be leased for a period of time on IBAB for power to the heavy container trains as seen here in Mora in a cold brisk morning of 9. December 2005.

BV DLL 3106
It looks a lot like David and Goliath as the smaller z70 is dwarfed by the mass of the BV.s heavy unit, which originally designed as heavy plow units. Never the less the size of the two units, both are located at the shops at Örebro. Örebro 2007-04-13.

GC V5 151
Still in late 2011, there are still few units in their original paint while Green Cargo is having a massive repaint and reconstruction going on T44-class and some of the Rc-class electrics.

V5 switchers
Much of the services on local switching and industrial switching has taken over by V5.s. Once the domain of various Z-classes and the earlier T21.s, V3.s. Here three of them are pictured in Mora during the late 1990.s as they replaced lighter Z70.s. Today they are not as common as the crews seem to prefer the much heavier T44.s for switching duties and also occationa runs on Älvdalen line, where they pick up a handful load of pulpwood. The image shows one in the orginal scheme and lettering and two decked out in the newer blue scheme. As they were transferred to Green Gargo, they have since the photos received GG.s decals and will be eventually repainted in the diesel version of the green scheme.

Still in 2012 it is common to see units in their origilan paint scheme as the many of the V5 class lighter units. Many of them are also repainted in blue former SJ-colors but as I know none is in green. My guess is that the class ist to be phasing out of the roster as in todays railroading there is less and less need for light switching. Borlänge 2012-04-05.

GC V5 162
Some of the lighter switching duties along theindustries is work for the V5.s in Borlänge. This unit was the only unit I saw today in original orange paint. 22th August 2005.

GC V5 168
I haven't yet heard of any of the V5.s painted in green paint, perhaps they are at their last legs as need for lighter switchers has declined allmost to zero, but there are a plenty decked out in "Blue Bandit scheme" as this unit in Borlänge . 22th August 2005.
GC V5 170.
Once V5.s were common in Mora as yard swicher duties as they bumped of the smaller Z70.s before themselves been bumped by T44.s. Quite a few of them still call Borlänge as their home, working industrial spurs and some of the flat yard switching. Still half of the fleet in 13th of February 2005 wore their paint as they were delivered but relettered for their new opertor, Green Gargo.

Another unit in original paint in April 2012 is V5 171, if not the logo of Green Cargo was there, it would look like as when it was new. Borlänge 2012-04-05.
GC V5 174.
Even the V5.s has become bandits. Here the idleing V5 174 in Borlänge in March 2003.

Allmost dead on on the same spot was the unit parked again in April 2014. The blue scheme looks a rather atractive on these units. Borlänge 2012-04-05.

GC V5 188.
More blue V5 bandits These engines were caught in one day at Borlänge in 16.th July 2003.

GC V5 187.
During the late 2002, CG started to add their trade mark sometimes rather boldly to their units. Some mostly Rcs and a few T44 have been repainted int to their green livery, but there are still quite of number units, like this V5 187 still in their orginal orange and blue scheme. This "bandid" was captured on disc in 26.th of February in 2003.

Ont the second shot few months later the engine was "banditzied" resting at nearly same spot in 2.nd of April 2003.
