[DE] In the picture: This is the EuroDual for HLG / Pronto Rail


The Spanish/Swiss hybrid invasion on six axles is far from over. Yet another EuroDual is making a premiere for yet another German operator. This time its Holzlogistik & Güterbahn (HLG)’s Pronto Rail.

About the livery

The applied livery design features a full blue front paired with a blue roof and partially blue body frame around the cabs. The central part of the frame has received a light gray base. HLG’s logo is present as a large-scale version on the sides, as well as in smaller sizes underneath the cab windows. The Pronto Rail logo has been included in gray on the sides, but also in white at the very top of the cab front (to the right of the headlight).
