The Vossloh G1206 is a BB 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 for German coal supplier RAG Aktiengesellschaft 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 from either a MTU or Caterpillar engines, giving a top speed of 100 kilometres per hour.
