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.
