See The New Trains That Will Be Used For Lagos-Ibadan Railway And Their Specification


Nigeria's minister for transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi was in China where he inspected some locomotive trains that are due for delivery to Nigeria soon. The trains will be used for the Abuja-Kaduna and Lagos-Ibadan rail lines. CRRC is the company responsible for the building, assembling and construction of the locomotive train, they decided to invite the minister to their factor in Qishuyan for a test run of the trains. CRRC Qishuyan dispatched the first batch of 10 locomotives and DMUs, these trains are due to arrive in Nigeria anytime soon.

Part of the trains that are due to arrive in Nigeria is the NDJ3(N) and DF11G(N) passenger locomotives, this is the first batch, the second batch will be unveiled soon. Remember we did a report on this, you can read it here.

According to reports, the contract was awarded to CRRC Qishuyan to supply 4 NDJ3(N) DMUs, 6 DF11G(N) passenger locomotives, 9 DF8B(N) freight locomotives and 2 DF7G(N) shunting locomotives for the Lagos - Ibadan Railway and Abuja - Kaduna Railway. The first batch of 10 locomotives will be dispatched by the end of October 2019.

AutoReportNG did a review of the trains and specs of these trains and this might interest you...

DF11G Quasi-high Speed Passenger Diesel Locomotive


DF11G double-heading quasi-high speed passenger diesel locomotive is specially developed for grand speedup of the railway. Currently, it is the main diesel locomotive run on China railway. It is equipped with the 16V280ZJA main diesel engine for traction, LonWorks network control is utilized, the speed monitoring system is set up for running safety and dynamic brake device is incorporated with full-power self-load function. Auxiliary diesel generator set with power supply functions for passenger cars is also equipped.

The double-heading locomotive is of enough power reserve, the superior performance of starting and accelerating, guaranteed reliability of key components, which is suitable for long routing.

NDJ3 Quasi-high Speed DMU


NDJ3
“Harmony and the Great Wall” DMU is developed under the transportation demand of Beijing Olympic Games, which commutes between Beijingbei and Yanqing. This DMU is a “2 motor-cars and 7 trailing cars” unit with one motor-car at each end and seven trailing passenger cars fixed in between. The locomotive is equipped with 12V280ZJ diesel engine. The maximum running speed is 160km/h.

Based on mature technologies, long-term operation and inspection results that got from medium and large overhaul, the performance and reliability of main components such as diesel engine, bogie frame, car body, traction motor used for NDJ3 DMU have been well verified. It is well suited for a long steep grade.

Since NDJ3 DMU was formally put into operation in 2008, this train set has been running safely and reliably for 8 years and was well recognized by customers, It was awarded the first Prize of Scientific & Technological Progress of China Railway Society in 2009.
