For some years now, Verkehrsbetriebe Peine-Salzgitter GmbH (VPS) is relying on Alpha Trains TRAXX locomotives to haul its iron ore and steel trains. The heavy trains often require two locomotives in multiple. Lately we see TRAXX MS2e locomotive with VPS freight trains and one of them now has a special livery.
At first Alpha Trains TRAXX AC1 (185) electrics were hired (VPS 5600 series), but lately TRAXX MS2e machines are hired (VPS 5660 series). Alpha Trains 186 131 alias VPS no. 5664 now has additional white/turquoise stickers promoting the operator itself, Hansaport and Salzgitter Flachstahl. The picture shows a Vossloh G6 shunting locomotive.
