[DE] The Nightpiercer and the Flixtrain [updated]

About last weekend: One of the Railpool Vectrons had to pay a visit to the workshops, so another workhorse had to be found to pull Flixtrains on 16.02.2019 and 17.02.2019. Hupac’s 193 492 ‘Nightpiercer’ was ready to take on this job and was documented numerous times while running from Köln to Hamburg and back. We share some impressions below.
