[SE] In the picture: A Nordic Re-Finance TRAXX trio at work in the snow

The impressive view below was taken on April 1st (no kidding!) and features locos 482 036, 042, and 043 with their pantos up:

While we are getting used to this different kind of black TRAXXes running in Sweden, there is something else we are looking forward to – the appearance of the sixth former SBB Cargo locomotive for Nordic Re-Finance (482 044). This one will be special not only because will it be equipped with ETCS for operation in Sweden and Norway, but also because it will look different…
