KTMB 29 class – Dalian

The 29 class locomotive or also known as Dalian among railway staffs and enthusiasts, was introduced in late 2005. It’s made in China by Dalian Locomotive Works in exchange for palm oil. It was named 29 instead of 27 because previously rail cars were using that number. This locomotives are currently the most powerful in South East Asia. It has a MAN engine from Germany which produces 3450HP. Unfortunately, this locomotive is infamous for bad reliability. As soon as they were put to service, it was having major problems and many were sitting in workshops. I guess this is what happens when you buy locomotives from China.

The exterior design of the loco is somewhat….unique, i guess. I think the Chinese designers copied the Blue Tigers here and there.
