Having been hired from Beacon Rail Leasing only recently, Die Länderbahn’s ER 20-013 is now underway in a special promotional livery for ‘bodo’, which is short for Bodensee-Oberschwaben Verkehrsverbundgesellschaft GmbH. One side features the Bodensee, while the other side shows the green hills in front of the Alps.[amazon_link asins=’3895808849,3440061450,B00TK0P088,B0008EIZEQ,B0762BMMZS’ template=’ProductCarousel’ store=’railcolorziem-21′ marketplace=’DE’ link_id=’e91ea090-dcfb-11e7-b21c-0702d6d77417′]
Recently, Die Länderbahn (DLB) expanded its fleet of EuroRunner diesel locomotives by hiring three locos from Beacon Rail Leasing. Involved in the deal are ER 20-001, 013 and 015. ER 20-001 appeared on ALEX passenger services quite quickly, but ER 20-013 and 015 were taken in first for the application of a new livery. ER 20-001 and 015 will keep their Beacon Rail blue livery and only see ALEX logos applied.
The German operator also has a fleet of 12 EuroRunners available that are leased from Alpha Trains (223 061-072) and has ER 20-007 on hire from MRCE (the lessor’s sole remaining diesel loco). Similar to ER 20-013 and 015, 007 is to keep its current livery, but with the addition of ALEX logos.
Unlike ER 20-013, EuroRunners ER 20-001, 007 and 015 will keep their current liveries, but with the addition of Alex logos on their fronts and sides, as well as small Bahnland Bayern stickers.
