[AT] Night vision: 247 905 now in Stern & Hafferl design – for the most part

It just came in: Vectron DE no. 247 905 now in an (almost) full livery of Austrian rail operator Stern & Hafferl (St&H). It is not surprise, the red livery is also used for the operator’s EuroRunner locomotives.

What is a surprise is that the side panels that sport the name ‘Vectron’ have not been covered by red stickers, they are still white. Also remarkable, and please don’t get angry Austria, the locomotive nog has a 7 digit front number: 1247 905. In the Austrian number scheme it is now an electric locomotive…
