[DE] 248 001: Railsystems RP starts using Vectron Dual Mode [updatedx2]

Just before Christmas, on 21.12.2020, Railsystems RP picked up 248 001 in Munich. Various photographers have caught the locomotive with their camera:

Remarkable: The big Vectron text on the sides of 001 has been replaced by a more modest version to make place for the Railsystems RP-name. All is still in line with Siemens’ original design.

Sebastian Bollmann sent in 248 001 in action in diesel mode, together with 151 079 and a wood train northbound to Brake (Unterweser):

Stephan Penk documented 248 001 together with RP 151 079 on 31.12.2020. Below an image of the locos with an empty wood train from Brake southbound on the Nord-Süd Strecke near Siedlung Leinetal between Freden and Kreiensen:

Meanwhile – SETG has been testing 248 001.
