[DE] In the picture: The HBC Prima H3 on the job

Recently, German operator Hanseatisches Bahn Contor (HBC) recently received its two Prima H3 shunters by Alstom. Time to see them at their new ‘home’.

Railcolor News thanks Markus Hartmann for sharing his pictures. Check out his website, Dresdner Bahnfotografie, for more nice railway impressions from Germany.

Two of a kind, or at least for HBC’s operations within the harbor of Hamburg, the two H3’s are, as follows:

1002 033

  • NVR: 90 80 1002 033-1 D-HBC

Still all-white and already pulling container trains at the HHLA’s Container Terminal Altenwerder (CTA) in Hamburg. The following images show the hybrid at work:
