Start-up attempts on the mountain with heavy loads. Thus, the tractive effort of the locomotive under extreme conditions is tested on wet or icy tracks and slopes up to 27 degrees.
The experiments showed that the "120" can take on any known heavy load locomotive.
Five machines are currently in trials. In the test, all test results are registered and evaluated. These include not only the performance of the locomotive. The load values measured with precision electronics for wheels, chassis, Rails and track base are important for later operation.
