[DE] The real thing: Meet the Metronom TRAXX P160 AC3

No more photoshop (we were pretty close, by the way). This time we bring you a picture of the real thing. Meet the first TRAXX P160 AC3 for Landesnahverkehrsgesellschaft Niedersachsen (LNVG):

Today, the newly assembled 147 543 of LNVG was out and about on a test drive in Kassel (DE). Christian Klotz brings us these exclusive images, which show the locomotive in its final livery design:

The full NVR-Number of the locomotive is 91 80 6147 543-3 D-LNVG. (LNVG’s number with the highest number is currently 146 542, so that explains the 543). On its side, a Flex-Panel can be seen with a Metronom advertising motif, featuring the “Unterwegs mit Freunden” slogan which means “Traveling with friends” in English.
