[DE] Baureihe 120 for Widmer Rail Services?

Swiss Re 430 electrics, class 1042s from Austria, Baureihe 146 from Macquarie Rail, even Hupac Vectrons. Swiss operator Widmer Rail Services (WRS) and its German subsidiary already have a wide variety of locomotives in their fleet. Possibly, German modern classics will be joining soon:

Last week WRS hinted about a new project it will be working on during the second half of this year. The message came with an image of two blurry Baureihe 120s parked behind a TRAXX (see below).

According to WRS, the current goal is to operate two locomotives. These are the numbers of the locomotives that WRS will be testing:

  • 120 148-8;
  • 120 204-3.

A third one, 120 154-0, will be used for spare parts.

This news inspired us to share our own vision of what a BR 120 electric could look like in WRS blue:
