[DE] Infraleuna orders 2 Smartron locomotives from Siemens

Today Siemens Mobility announced its second Smartron order: InfraLeuna will be receiving two copies of the standardised freight locomotive for the German market.

A further milestone for the Smartron is being set as Siemens secures a second order of 2 locomotives of the type. The client, InfraLeuna from Germany is not unfamiliar with the product as it was the launching customer for Siemens Vectron DE diesel locomotives.
