For Romanian Railways[edit]

Diesel locomotives[edit]

The diesel electric locomotives employed by CFR and built by Electroputere Craiova are known as classes 60 to 68 and originally registered under the series 060-DA. They were based on a design created by SLM Winterthur, BBC Baden and Sulzer Winterthur and bears, externally, resemblance to AE 6/6 Swiss electric locomotives.[1] New diesel modernised (post-1999) locomotives are painted in blue livery, while older ones have grey livery.[2][3]
