[NL] Siemens 193 818 in the Netherlands [updated]

Seen today in the Netherlands: Siemens 193 818. This is a Siemens locomotive with the country specific package DE-AT-CH-IT-NL and it’s the first time we record an open access operator pulling a freight train with this type of Vectron in the Netherlands.

Siemens 193 818 was delivered on 30.01.2018 and is leased to RTB Cargo since March.

DB Cargo was the first to use DE-AT-CH-IT-NL Vectron locos in the Netherlands (series 193 3xx) –  RTB Cargo and LTE are also using Vectron locomotives but with DE-AT-PL-CZ-SK-HU-RO-NL configuration.
