Our original article from 20.01.2020:

DB Cargo makes good use of the Vectron locomotives it received in white (instead of the standard red). 193 363 is now the ‘Climate Hero’ of the German freight operator. Design-wise, the livery adheres to the previously established, minimalist approach of implementing a colorful line to the cabs of the locomotive (leaving the body white). The chosen accent color this time is green and there are floral motifs decorating the slogan on the sides:

DB Cargo shares that Rail freight transport saves 70-80% emissions compared to transportation on the road. This is the message that the locomotive will be highlighting with its original livery from now on.
