[NL / Expert] LWR: First electrics arrive at Siemens-MRCE new locomotive workshop in Rotterdam

On Monday afternoon, September 7th 2019, the brand new LWR workshop started working on its very first locomotive. MRCE lease locomotive (German registered) 189 203 (ES64F4-203) had the honor of being first, followed by 189 202 (ES64F4-202). In the weekend before, Dutch rail infrastructure manager Prorail tested and approved the rail connection to Locomotive Workshop Rotterdam, recently erected on the Maasvlakte, in the extreme West of the port of Rotterdam. From now on LWR is open for customers and will get more and more into full swing.
