    The "Taurus" class 1016/1116, originally designed for the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB), has now become a European success and is currently among the most up-to-date high power locomotives on the continent. This locomotive is called the "Taurus" ("bull" in English) and is a representative of the EuroSprinter family"s second generation. This locomotive is distinguished by an extremely high level of power, with a peak output of 7,000 kilowatts or more than 9,500 hp. There"s a reason for the name "Taurus" for this powerhouse. This locomotive can be used for both the heaviest freight trains and for important passenger service. In addition to the single system version (designated as the class 1016), this locomotive is also used in Europe as a dual system locomotive (class 1116). "Taurus" locomotives are now also in use in Switzerland and Hungary. "Taurus" locomotives are even on the rosters of private carriers in locomotive pools. Even DB Cargo changed the remainder of its order for the class 152 into class 1116 dual system universal locomotives that are now in use on the German Railroad as the class 182.
