Some livery designs stick around longer than others, even if that means changing the locomotive. This precisely happened with the 2021 RTB Cargo / PCC Intermodal’s Container livery design, which was recently re-applied to another TRAXX MS2e of Railpool.
Do you remember? At the start of 2021, Railpool’s 186 430 premiered a colourful livery wrap – a joint project by Railcolor Design and OnTrack – Creativity for Railways. The “Container” features an orange-blue container (..) promoting intermodal transportation while highlighting the partnership between RTB Cargo and PCC Intermodal.
As RTB Cargo had to return 186 430 to lease company Railpool, another KG10-locomotive, 186 530, came as a substitute. And it was given exactly the same design. On 30.04.2023, Railcolor News contributor Steven Oskam caught the shiny machine in the Netherlands:
