[DE] Loco Buggies used to bring damaged TX Logistik 185 538 to Kassel [updated]

On 15.11.2017, RailAdventure 139 558 took TX Logistik electric locomotive no. 185 538 from Bremen to Kassel. Clearly the locomotive is damaged – check the subtle ‘wrinkles’ at the bottom of the right cab. The special ‘Loco Buggies’ developed by RailAdventure were used to get the machine back ‘home’. 

Update 17.11.2017: Early October the 185 538 collided sideways with Locon diesel locomotive 207 (V100-West) in Bremen. The electric locomotive was pushed of the tracks and derailed.

TX Logistik owns 5 such machines that were built in 2004, the full list can be found on Railcolor.net
