The class 186 is a multi-system locomotive of the second TRAXX generation from Bombardier. The four-system locomotive type F140 MS(2e) is based on the TRAXX F140 AC2 design. With additional equipment for use with direct current networks 1.5 kV (Netherlands, France) and 3 kV (Belgium, Poland, Italy), it was developed from 2004 onwards; provided it had appropriate additional equipment and train safety systems. With a service weight of 85 t, they have a power output of 5,600 kW and can reach a maximum speed of 140 km/h. Most of the 65 DB AG locomotives (DB Cargo, Euro Cargo Rail) operate in Germany, France and Belgium.

Due to the procurement of multiple units, locomotive-hauled passenger trains are becoming increasingly rare in Norway. That’s also true for twenty-two class EL 18 locomotives procured by the NSB in the 1990s from the Swiss SLM, the German Adtranz and the Norwegian Strømmens Værksted. The English company “Go-Ahead” has leased three locomotives of this type from Norske Tog for the “Sørtoget” night trains.
