[IT] In the picture: G 2000 51 is now wearing the CFI standard livery design

In May, the Vossloh-built G 2000 51 re-appeared in a fresh coat of paint. Now its new livery reflects the current owner of the locomotive: Compagnia Ferroviaria Italiana (CFI).

Railcolor News thanks Pierluigi Paciorri for his photo-submission – check out his Flickr profile for more trainspotting impressions from Italy. Have a newsworthy photo yourself? Send it to us by email or through our submission form.

The G 2000-51 of CFI now sports the eye-catching red/gray livery of the Italian operator. Previously, this unit was owned by Rail One and was seen with the blue-ish colors of that operator. Pierluigi shares that the locomotive is being mainly used in the Terni steelworks and the port of Civitavecchia.

And the pictures below shows just that – the locomotive on its way from the Terni steel plant to the port of Civitavecchia, passing through Roma Tuscolana:
