  The photo taken on Aug. 18, 2010 shows locomotives parking in a storage area in Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Company Limited ( ZELC) in Zhuzhou, central China's Hunan Province. ZELC, a subsidiary of China South Locomotive &Rolling (CSR) which is one of China's biggest maker of rail vehicles, signed July 23, 2010 a contract of 4 billion yuan (590 million U.S. dollars) with Malaysia's traffic ministry for inter-city trains which will be put into service for the north-south line of Kuala Lumpur, the city's busiest shuttle line. Aside from Malaysia, the locomotives and carriages made by ZELC of CSR will travel in countries like Singapore, which bought 114 subway maintenance vehicles in June 1, 2009, India, which signed a contract to purchase subway trains on June 21, 2010, Saudi Arabia, which ordered locomotives on July 20, 2010, and so on. These successes helped the company earn a total of 760 million U.S. dollars in overseas trade as well as a global brand. The company is at the same time enhanced by its world class key technologies in product design and manufacture. The company plans to raise the proportion of overseas income to gross income from the current 10 percent up to 20 percent in next five years. ZELC of CSR has enough confidence to do so, especially after it brought HXD1B high power AC drive 6-axle (9600kw) freight electric locomotives into its product category on January 16, 2009. This type of locomotive is independently developed by the company itself, the most advanced strong power AC drive electric locomotive.(Xinhua/Zhao Zhongzhi)
