Mertz Maxima

Voith Maxima 30CC 263.006 passed Grünholz with a southbound train of spoil from the Stuttgart 21 excavations to the Dießlingen disposal site on 28 April 2017. Stuttgart 21 is the controversial project to replace the existing Hauptbahnhof with a new underground station.

In an age when electric transmission is almost universal for large diesel locomotives, Voith attempted to buck the trend with it’s Maxima design, produced in 3000HP (30CC) and 4000HP (40CC) variants between 2008 and 2010. Large scale orders weren’t forthcoming but the 19 locos built have found employment with various operators.
