A follow-up to a previous picture: After having rented a Voith Maxima for some time, track construction company Wiebe now finally received their own, and they decided to paint it yellow and white. Not my favorite paint scheme for that machine, but if they like itů
I really like low-angle shots of trains, precisely because they turn out so imposing.
I remember about asking about this very weird looking train, what you think worse or better than a BR Class 70?
From the looks, I definitely like this one better. In other aspects, I have no real clue. The Maxima here has more power than the 70, with up to 4800 HP vs. 3700 HP. It is also approved for at least Poland, Germany and the Netherlands, with more definitely planned, while GE has only a british approval so far. I have no idea which one has more tractive effort, though. But if it is about what I’d buy for my model railroad, I’d definitely take the Voith Maxima.
