About the design

LWC’s EuroDual is red, combined with the locomotive basic white paint. A grey color supplements the design, which features several logos ordered horizontally in between the cooling vents of the EuroDual.

The ones of LWC and HSL Logistik are placed centrally. There is also a slogan: ‘A small railway that’s on the move’, accompanied by an emblem depicting the EuroDual.

Another element worthy of mentioning is the dark-gray-painted frame of the locomotive.
