[EU] TX Logistik re-releases its horse livery in white


Vectron 193 997 has been serving TX Logistik in the original Railpool livery for some time now. The locomotive’s exterior recently underwent a complete makeover as the Italian-owned operator decided to adorn it with a white edition of its horse design livery which now says ‘8,500 horses’.

When it comes to the exterior of its locomotive fleet, TX Logistik makes sure there is a wide variety of choices out there. The latest release has materialised in the form of a light version of the familiar horse livery design:

No striking red frame this time as it has remained silver. And a white, instead of a black background for all these horses. But the “Wir bringen die kraft von 8.500 pferden auf die schiene” slogan is still there. Railpool logos have also been added to the loco sides (bigger size) and cab ends (smaller size).
