[CH] In the picture: The ‘Scherenschnitt’ Vectron of WRS in action

A month ago, our Expert subscribers got to see the brand new Vectrons of Swiss freight operator Widmer Rail Services (WRS). Now, it’s time to have a look at them in service. In focus, the papercutting-decorated 475 902.

Two blue Vectrons have been wearing WRS’s distinctive logos for some time now. 475 902 is arguably more catching, as it features special papercutting (Scherenschnit) motifs on its sides.

On 07.01.2021, the locomotive was caught in action with a tank car service running between Basel Birsfelden Hafen and Salez-Sennwald in Switzerland:
