[IT / Expert] The red rage… DB Cargo Italia 189 822 and 823 repainted

Another two locomotives fell into the pot with red paint of DB Cargo Italia. After the repainting of all Nordcargo 483s and 474 201, this time, the all-white 189 822 and 823 had their turn.

E 189-822 and -823 are two ES64F4 type locomotives with a curious history. Both started as a Siemens-locomotive, back in 2011, for sale but ending up being a rental for quite some years. You may remember E 189 822 from its time with the Steirmarkbahn; it had green company-specific logos from 2013-2017.
