EP20

The locomotives of the series ЭП20 ( EP20 ) of the Russian Railways ( RŽD ) are broad-gauge (1520 mm) electric locomotives. They were developed by a joint venture between Alstom and Transmashholding and presented in 2010 by the Novocherkassk Electric Locomotive Factory.

In May 2010, the RŽD ordered 200 locomotives of this series, which will be delivered between spring 2011 and 2020. They are intended inter alia for the quick route Moscow - Sochi, which should go up to the Winter Olympics in 2014.
