Travca: Traction Without Borders

Travca is a locomotive that stops at nothing; not at different power supplies, track gauges nor signalling systems all of which makes Travca Talgo's most advanced development in the field of traction.

Talgo has not only been the leading global manufacturer in variable gauge technology for rolling stock for the past 50 year, it was also the first train manufacturer to build a locomotive that can adjust the axle gauge without having to stop. Designed to ease passenger traffic at international borders, Travca can also be used for freight transport and in last mile operations without electrification.

All kinds of trains and tracks

Travca has a very low weight per axle, meaning that its running gear easily complies with high-speed track’s demanding maintenance requirements, even when operating at 260km/h.

Dual voltage: any power supply will do

Travca is a dual voltage product meaning it can run on the two most common voltages in Europe and Russia. It is also customisable to run on any other voltage at the operator's request. With a single sign from the cabin, the locomotive is ready to continue its journey.

Lightweight and efficient

As well as guaranteed interoperability, another advantage this high-speed locomotive boasts is its energy efficient design. Travca is 15% lighter than other competing products and can accelerate and reach a speed of 260km/h easily while consuming less energy.
