This is the first time locomotives produced in China will enter the Estonian market, and will simultaneously be their first time entering the European Union market.

Last year New Zealand began receipt 20 new Chinese built mainline locomotives, a first to an English speaking country. Kiwi Rail has ordered 20 more. Australia has 10 mainline locos on order for delivery later this year from CSR Ziyang Locomotive. There are already Chinese built locos operating in Cuba. General Electric and Progress Rail should be taking note.
