Brookville Equipment Corp.: Eagle® Commuter Locomotives

Brookville Equipment Corp.


BROOKVILLE's sleek, aerodynamic Eagle Commuter Locomotives feature fuel-efficient, EPA-compliant power packages from 3200-4000 horsepower and are designed for passenger applications at speeds of up to 82 MPH. A separate head end power (HEP) gen-set provides 480 VAC hotel power for passenger cars, while state-of-the-art locomotive control systems improve wheel slippage and fuel efficiency for transit agencies. BROOKVILLE-adapted Blomberg trucks with disc braking provide a smooth ride and maximum stopping power. Ideal for regional rail service, the PTC-ready, four-axle Eagle locomotives include an ergonomic desk-style operator's console with a maximized panoramic view through the three-segment windshield, and an FRA-crashworthy design featuring an all-steel nose and semi-monocoque frame design.
