Electric locomotives are examples of trains that are powered by electricity. Multiple electric units. Multiple battery-powered unit. system for electrifying railroads.

Regenerative braking is possible with electric traction because the motors can be employed as both brakes and generators, converting the motion of the train into electricity that is subsequently returned to the lines.

With the aid of a pantograph, the electric locomotive collects electricity from the overhead equipment (OHE) and uses traction motors to move the axles in order to turn this electrical energy into mechanical energy in a controlled manner. Electric locomotives can be lighter and hence cause less wear on rail beds.

They are also more powerful and responsive. They accelerate more quickly, use less fuel, and emit less CO2. Electric trains offer significantly higher energy efficiency, lower pollutants, and cheaper operational costs as compared to the diesel engine, the main alternative.

Diesel locomotives are frequently noisier, less responsive, and less reliable than electric locomotives. Since electric traction is significantly more versatile than gears, modern locomotives employ it instead of gears. Diesel powers traction motors by fueling combustion engine generators, which then convert energy into electricity via an alternator.

When transporting a lot of freight, rail has lower fuel expenses than road transportation. Moreover, rail often has lower expenses for drop trailer programmes and has lower driver costs. It is more environmentally beneficial to ship goods by train. Compared to trucks, trains use less fuel per tonne mile.

Electric locomotives are more reliable than steam or diesel engines, but the lines or rails that transport the electric current must be built at a very high cost.

The Global electric train market accounted for $XX Billion in 2023 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2024 to 2030.


The arrival of M8 electric trains on the Shore Line East was announced by Governor Lamont. Customers of Shore Line East have eagerly anticipated the M8 Electric Multiple Units (EMU), which are a significant upgrade above the previous diesel-powered train sets.

Electric trains include more amenities for passengers, such as electrical outlets at every seat, brighter interiors, modern lavatories, higher back seats, and improved luggage racks, they produce no carbon emissions.

The use of all-electric M8 trains on Shore Line East will enhance the travelling experience for residents and visitors of Connecticut while also lowering carbon emissions.
