[EU] Close-up: This is Vectron no.3 for RATH Gruppe

This January, we witnessed the debut of RTB Cargo’s 193 791 and 792. Now we can present the third blue Vectron for the operator from Germany. And this one has a special livery.

We thank Tim Roux for letting us feature his photo of 193 793 in action (see below).

Let’s first start with a general view of the locomotive, as seen on 21.02.2019:

The blue Vectron fleet of RTB Cargo is growing. But unlike the other two machines, the new member – 193 793 – is promoting the entire RATH Gruppe, RTB Cargo’s mother company. To fulfil this special task, the livery of the locomotive features visualisations of six members the company:

  • Infrastructure;
  • Passenger transport (Rurtalbahn, VIAS for example);
  • Freight transport (= RTB Cargo);
  • Training (LUKAS);
  • Maintenance;
  • IT.

Note that the 793 does not have the logos of UniCredit, but RATH instead (small logos to the right just above the frame).

The picture below shows a close up (from left to right) of the Infrastruktur (infrastructure), Personenverkehr (passenger transport) and Güterverkehr (cargo transport) graphics:

On 23.02.2019 the locomotive was seen in revenue service near Gemünden am Main (DE). It was pulling the ARS Altmann rack trough the Werntalbahn between the cities of Regensburg and Bremerhaven.
