[RO] In the picture: Transmontana 480 007 promoting Bucovina

Romanian freight operator Cargo Trans Vagon (CTV) owns three Transmontana locomotives. The last one was delivered at the end of 2020 and represented the v3.0 of the Romanian-built locomotive. Today, we look at one of the older locomotives with the original Transmontana cabs. The reason? A new livery wrap!

Transmontana 480 007 was built way back in 2017. As seen in a recent ‘News in brief: Locomotives’ edition, the locomotive now sports a colorful new livery. The design follows the aesthetics of what we saw previously on CTV’s newest electric from Softronic: Transmontana 480 051. This time, Romania’s Bucovina region is in focus with a colorful collage on the locomotive’s sides.

As mentioned above, CTV owns three Transmontana electrics:

  • 480 007 = 91 53 0480 007-0 RO-CTV = LEMA 007 / 2013;
  • 480 011 = 91 53 0480 011-2 RO-CTV = LEMA 011 / 2014;
  • 480 051 = 91 53 0480 051-8 = LEMA 051 / 2020.
