Rc, RD and Rm Locomotives

Welcome to the Rc, Rd and Rm locomotives roster and picture page! This is the infamous ASEA built locomotive that its many operatoers have found extremely tough and trustworthy. We have so far collected pictures of most locos in the roster and many of these are displayed here. Even moreare added regularly. You might also be interested in the Swedish Electric Loco Page, Diesel Loco Page, EMU or DMU pages.

Operators for Rc, Rd and RmClasses

 Rc and Rd Operators

Green Cargo Rc4 numbers 1187 and 1268 in Kiruna with intermodal, Sweden

Green Cargo class Rd2 number 1069 in Alvesta, Sweden

The operator field has just recently been reformed as numerous Rc locomotives have entered their second hand users. A batch of Rc locos has also returned to Sweden from Austria.

Green Cargo AB
Green Cargo today owns around 250 locomotives (down from 350 just a few years ago), out of which about 200 belong to Rc, Rd and Rm classes. These are operated exclusively on freight duties of all sorts in Sweden and Norway. In the picture the intermodal train from Oslo Norway has just reached 1800 kilometers (1100 miles) and is chancing crews at Kiruna station in the northern Sweden. This was a route they earlier hauled. The train here still has to cross about 150 kilometers (90 miles) of tough mountain range starting about half an hours drive after Kiruna. The end destination is Narvik in north Norway.

 IORE page In the picture two of the Green Cargo class Rc4 locomotives are seen in the both most common liveries. Green Cargo owns around 100 Rc4 and Rc4P locomotives for its services. Two locomotives are well needed for the mountain grades and triple headed extremely heavy steel slab trains that they haul.



 IORE page Swedish Electric Loco Theme Page...
 IORE page Malmbana Theme Pages...


 IORE page For the next two decades to use Green Cargo has converted 79 Rc2 locomotives to Rd2s . These locomotives throughoutly modernized by Bombardier in Denmark are now in wide use around Green Cargo network of Sweden. For hauling "Swedish style" smaller freight trains Rd2 is quite at home, and multiple uise is always an option to use.

As usual for a freight operator, also Green Cargo has a small number of more modern Bombardier TRAXX F140 AC2 locomotives for its use, classified as Re. However, the production still relies on traditional Rc and now Rd traction power.

HectorRail class 143 number 059 in Hallsberg, Sweden

HectorRail
HectorRail is one of the latest owners of the Rc3 fleet. SJ auctioned surplus locomotives - all of its Rc3 fleet - in 2014. HectorRail bought most of these for its own use and other operators. Today 8 units remain in its use, working along other 4 axle fleet. Multiple running is also common for Rc3 / Hector calss 143.


 IORE page Rc3 #1059 / HectorRail class 143 number 059 is seen parked in Hallsberg between assignments. This locomotive and a sister behind it still wear the ex. SJ livery.



  Infranord


  Rush Rail
SJ Rc6 number 1357 with a passenger train near Valtorp, Sweden


SJ
SJ is the national Swedish passenger train operator with numerous Rc6 and some Rc3 for its use. The SJ Rc6 is very easy to spot handsome black locomotive hauled single or multi colored passenger coaches. Sometimes these run even in double like between Stockholm and Uppsala avoiding running around the locomotive at the end of the route.

As a passenger operator SJ also has been active user of electrical multiple units. These modern units are mostly modern X2000 (SJ2000) and brand new X55 (SJ3000) EMUs.

SSRT Rc6 number 1335 with a regional at Gällivare, Sweden


SSRT
The Swedish railways were antimonopolized and split to several pieces in 2000 / 2001. What was left over went to the administration. The owner for the rolling stock there became SSRT, which is not supposed to have any meaning but sounds like "Swedish State Railway Trains".

SSRT owns the rolling stock now used mostly for the passenger traffic on Malmbana in the Swedish north. The Veolia colored Rc6 locomotives of the batch close to number 1330 run various colored trains between Luleå in the south and Narvik in the Northwest.

In the picture on the left one of these trains pulled by Rc6 number 1335 is just leaving Gällivare on its way south to Luleå. It has just been boarded by 100 passengers from this station. Picture by John McKey.

Tåg AB Rc2 number 006 with a container train in Hallsberg, Sweden


TågAB
Sometimes the situations just wait for the operators to react. The HectorRail has been traditionally buying used locomotive power from Austria, so why would others hesitate when some more comes to be sold. The ÖBB of Austria overinvested years ago to Taurus locomotives so for a while now the market for buyers of other locomotives from Austria the market has been good.

TågAB is one of the buyers. The ex. ÖBB units are easily recognizable by their larger running lights. The typical Swedish 3 or 5 lamp on the cab windows here also only has large white and smaller red light.

Veolia Rc6 number 1331 in Abisco Sweden
Veolia
Veolia colors for many of its operations are gray, red and white. Here the coaches are still in their ex. SJ color scheme.

Veolia no longer operates trains on Malmbana, like here in the picture and the "southern" operations are now hauled by HectorRail locomotives.

The Green Cargo painted Rc2 number 1087 was switching freight cars, Td and T44 locomotives at Tomteboda in Stockholm. Tomteboda (home for elves in English) has a huge sorting center for the Swedish postal services plus a lively rail yard. The yard can be seen easily from all sides with the Rc-locomotives and remote controlled T44s doing switching.
