Diesel locomotive equipped with a hybrid propulsion unit. The main design feature is application of electrochemical capacitors along with a diesel generator set thus making it possible to keep the locomotive in continuously ‘hot’ condition at idle speed and to save the engine potential. In case of necessity, the locomotive is capable of functioning with the use of energy from super capacitors while the engine is switched off. The locomotive undercarriage is designed on the basis of TEM18DM
