[LU / Expert] Vectron for Luxembourg has arrived

Another new Vectron has arrived in Regensburg. It is simply white, but its tech details are interesting. It is the second time this week we see a Vectron numbered ‘6193’. Machine no. 483 arrived last week, this time we see 6193 485.

  • 91 80 6 193 485-0 D-SIEAG = 6193 485 = Vectron 1.039 = Siemens 22879 > Version A54-2

Interesting detail: 6193 485 weighs 90 tonnes.

This means we have seen two different A-54 versions now:

  • A54-2 = DE-AT-PL-NL-BE-LU-CZ-SK-HU-RO-HR-BG-RS
    First seen in October 2020 – on Siemens locomotives 6193 485
  • A54-3(c) = DE-AT-PL-NL-BE-CZ-SK-HU-RO
    First seen in July 2020 on 193 564/565 for RATH/RTB Cargo

It is the first time we document a Vectron intended for opertion in Luxembourg. It fits Siemens’ plans to get the Vectron authorized for Luxembourg and later France.
