The Series M250 freigh train, named "Super-Railcargo," made its debut in March, 2004, on Takaido Main, a logistic
artery in Japan. It's designed to carry containers at a top speed of 130 km/h (81 mph).
The M250 is equiped with AC traction. A standard M250 consists of 16 cars and has 16 powered axles with a 220 kW (295 horsepower)
traction motor per axle. The combined total output of the M250 is 3,520 kW or 4,720 hp.
As the first multi-motored container express train for JR Freight, the Series M250 makes its
daily trip between Tokyo and Osaka in approximately 6 hours and 10 minutes. The train hauls a total of 28 U54A
31-foot containers. These containers display a paint scheme, in a 12-car configuration, dedicated to
Sagawa Kyubin, a major parcel forwarder in Japan.
It is important to note that the Series M250 was developed to help decrease the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere
due to high-speed cargo transports. Its use is expected to annually reduce CO2 emissions by some 14,000 metric tons.
