[EU] Move over 186: This is ‘Baureihe 188’

Bombardier is currently finalising its newest multi system electric locomotive for freight traffic in Europe. Step by step the manufacturer is bringing images of the final phase of construction of the new ‘MS3’. We saw the locomotive being placed on its bogies, today images were released of the machine being outside for the first time.

You a grey and red painted locomotive with the same exterior design as the ‘187‘ but with smooth side panels. Over time this ‘188’ will replace the ‘186’, Bombardier’s current TRAXX model for multi system duty.

The machine in the image is equipped for DE-AT-PL-NL-CZ-SK-HU + RO-HR-SI-IT. Tests to get certified in all these countries now can commence.
