The Vossloh G1206 is a B'B'[1] diesel hydraulic freight locomotive built by Vossloh and used by several mainland European railway operators. The design was created in the mid-1990s by Maschinenbau Kiel (MaK) for German coal supplier RAG Aktiengesellschaft (RAG AG) and is a follow-on to the G1205 locomotive class built as SNCB Class 77. A cab is provided above one of the bogies, with walkways on both sides along the rest of the locomotive. Rated power is 1,500 kilowatts (2,010 hp) from either a MTU or Caterpillar engines, giving a top speed of 100 kilometres per hour (60 mph).
