Autorail X 5000

Autorail X 5000

1981

Twin-engine railcar equipped with two CFD powershift gearboxes and bogies with all axles driven. Its heavier and more powerful design than that of its predecessors allowed it to tow a trailer in its operation in Corsica.

4 drive axles for improved grip

By having all its axles driven, the grip qualities of this railcar have been greatly improved compared to the previous generation.
