[DE] In the picture: Captrain’s EuroDual 159 101 in action [updated]

Time for a fresh update! While 159 102 is already in Germany,  159 102 is working hard. Sebastian Brattke brings us this nice view from Berlin Wuhlheide, showing the locomotive with a train from Berlin-Nordost to Mühlberg on 14.04.2020:
