[DE] Out and about: The Go-Ahead Desiro HC outside the test tracks

Over the past months, Railcolor News did a thorough coverage of the Go-Ahead Desiro HC developments at the Wegberg-Wildenrath test circuit. We watched them arrive, and do their test runs both on their own and together with Go-Ahead’s Mireo. Now it’s time to follow the tests outside the test tracks.

Railcolor News thanks Johannes Unverferth for his photo contribution.

When it comes to certification tests of new rolling stock, these take place at closed circles and on the national network too. It is the first time we observe a Go-Ahead Desiro HC running on its own “in the wild”:
