Since the news came out about a new 12000HP Alstom loco, we all were curious about it. But finally when the footage of 'WAG12' wad revealed, what it appeared is that it is only two 6000HP locos stitched together.
So do you think that it is overhyped, misleading and kind of a lie?
NO vote
1) Yes. it's twin loco tech only which is already common in IR
2) Yes. a single loco is actually less powerful than WAG9
3) Yes. existing WAG9 could easily be modified and a WAG9 twin could produce 12700HP. which is greater than WAG12
4) All of the above
5) No. it is actually a progress in technogy
6) Any other opinion (Please comment)
7) No idea
