Two new stars have born and their names are ‘Stephenson’ and ‘Werner’. Those are the names for the two newest Hector Rail locomotives, that were released from work by Siemens last weekend. In different stages, the 243 103 and 104 were taken from Munich to Krefeld in Northern Germany, and from there to Malmö gbg as part of freight train HG 59662 Weil am Rhein – Rolvsøy.
The new Hector Rail Vectrons are sporting names of railway engineering pioneers. ‘Werner’ refers to Werner von Siemens, the 103 is named after George Stephenson, an English civil engineer and often referred to as “Father of Railways”.
The locomotives are stars because many of you took the time to take pictures. We made a selection, a picture report. A big thanks to Wolfgang Scheer, Niklas Eimers, Jeroen Franssen and Steffen Haase.
