FS E656 locomotive
Source: Wikipedia
The E656 locomotive is nicknamed "Caimano". It owes its name to the competition launched in the February 1976 issue by the Ferrovie dello Stato company book "Voci della rotaia".
These are the latest vehicles built with the three-bogie wheel arrangement and articulated half-bodies, typical of various families of Italian vehicles, such as the E.636, E.645 and E.646 locomotives, to solve the problem of lines with many curves and reduced radius: the rigid wheelbase of the vehicle was drastically reduced, making the vehicles less aggressive towards the rail.
Being intended for towing heavy trains, even on steep lines, and given the technical requirements in terms of equipment, the E.656s would have had to have a higher than average mass, and a lot of internal space for housing the systems. The cabins at the ends were placed in a forward position, almost cantilevered. Following the tests, the expected speed of 160 km/h turned out to be a chimera, and the E.656s were limited to 150 km/h, a result which in any case did not compromise their use for towing convoy compositions medium and long distances outside the rapid category.
The first machines entered service between the end of 1975 and 1976, making it possible to make up for the lack of tractors. They also made it possible to increase the number of locomotives assigned to passenger services on the main lines, with a rationalization of the service.
