133.8 tonne dead weight, be interesting to see intended use, they are going to be very route limited, add another 10 tonne for fuel to make live weight plus more for other consumables.

These are the same as the standard gauge CBH class locomotives 118 to 122.

They are 134 t fully loaded with an axle load of just less than 22 tons.

I think the CM class will be the same and the interpretation of the data sheet is incorrect.

The CFCLA website http://www.cfcla.com.au/locomotives-mainline2000.htm which leads to the datasheet lists the dead weight info. Comparing the info in the datasheet (eg axle load) and known CBH info I'd be inclined to agree to dead weight noted is really the fully fueled weight.

I'm interested to see the front of the new CM's, Is there any photos of them looking from the front yet?

CRL did it on their website with the planned 1150's side & front photos, so why not the CM's?

They may mean dead hauling mass , BTW do D87BTRs use plain suspension bearings ?

I know but I'm just interested in seeing on how the CFCLA livery would look from the front.

The "R" in BTR stands for roller suspension bearings.
