We are on board the locomotive series SZ 363 "Brigitte", so nicknamed in honour of buxom actress Brigitte Bardot, both of French origin! The train is a heavy container shuttle destined for Austria. The class 363 (SZ Cargo have 39 of the type) are six-axle locomotives built by Alstom around 1975. They are a development of the 3 kV. BB 15000 operated by SNCF and the NS class 1600. Brigitte develops a power of 2750 kW with a top speed of 125 kph. For decades this was the most powerful locomotive class in the SZ fleet – a distinction now passed to the Siemens Taurus. An unusual feature of this locomotive is the manual gearbox that is able to vary the transmission ratio for either freight services (75 km / h) or passenger trains (125 km / h). On a gloomy day we travel from the port of Koper to Ljubljana and onward to the Austrian border at Maribor. Brigitte was severely tested by the particularly slimy rail conditions and the heavy train. Gloomy is a bit of an understatement! This is a rainy day cab ride but at least this keeps the windscreen lovely and clean – and the windscreen wipers are very effective. Actually the view is fine – and you soon get used to the rain! The camera positions used are more conventional than found in TG CL 141.
