[DE] HSL Logistik: new locomotives nearing completion [updated]

Two weeks ago, we showed you the first AC3 electric locomotives to be operated by HSL Logistik. But there is more to come. Next to the contract for leasing three such machines, HSL Logistik has also its own locomotives on order. Four machines will come, of which the designated 187 535 and 187 536 are the first ones to be handed over.
