[EU] Updatedx3: Alpha Trains and TX Logistik bring another four theme locomotives

Yes they did it again. Lease company Alpha Trains and operator TX Logistik have released three new ‘theme locomotives’, meaning two Vectron machines with a special wrapping. 193 556 now has ‘a license to rail’, while 193 557 is a ‘daily hero’. 193 558 was first seen on 03.09.2017 and the machine is a ‘natural talent’, 193 559 has a similar design but a different slogan: ‘Naturail’. Enjoy these fine images:

We noted that 193 556-559 have different front logos, compared to the ‘older’ ones. The TX Logistik logos have a black font color, in stead of white, and the baseline ‘Mercitalia Group’ is added.
