At the end of August, Unipetrol Doprava ordered four more Vectrons for its locomotive fleet. One month later the first of them – 383 056 – was seen and now, it has been released in Czechia, in its final design. And, it looks different from what you may expect:

About the design
A closer look at the locomotive reveals that the main frontal shape that connects the roof all the way down to the frame of the cab has been actually preserved.

And the Unipetrol logo has been upgraded too – all signs of an upcoming rebranding project.
