Czech class 242 electric locomotive

Seen in Pilsen (Plzen) where they were built by Skoda, this example obviously hasn't been to the workshops for a while. The Class 242 electrics for 25 kV AC 50 Hz were built from 1975 and are rated at 3080 kW (4128 hp) and have a top speed of 120 km/h (74 mph). (Geoff Churchman pic)
