Bombardier has released the first updated TRAXX AC1 locomotive. ’91 80 6146 503-8 D-BTH’ now has a livery similar to the one used for the new AC3s. Martin Priebs was able to make a first shot of the locomotive, together with two modernized double-deck cars, and two that have not yet been rebuilt. And a month later it was caught running on line RE3.
