In December 1990, Portuguese Railways (CP) commissioned a consortium – headed by Siemens – to design and supply 30 universal locomotives. Siemens’ partners were Sorefame and Siemens SA Portugal, as well as today’s Siemens locomotive plant in Munich. The Universal Locomotive LE 5600 proves its value in heavy-duty freight traffic, as well as in rapid passenger service.
