[CZ] 383 050 it is; This is the first Vectron locomotive for Unipetrol [updatedx2]

That is of course very useful; when you can use a new, yet certified locomotive for your rolling stock transport. Today, the white 383 050-2, soon to be delivered to Unipetrol Doprava, tookl locomotives, cars and coaches to the VUZ Velim test center in the Czech Republic. Marcus Schrödter took pictures:

Unipetrol decided to order three Vectron locomotives in April 2017. The delivery of the first machine is scheduled for next December. The remaining two will arrive in 2018.
