182 009 with a commercial look, promoting DHL express and logistics
As already stated, the DB 182 series is almost identical to the 1116 series running for the OBB. Technically they are identical. The Germans however demanded specific add-on features that required a separate approval for Austria. Examples are equipment for GSM based data transfer, systems making it possible to operate these locomotives in multiple traction and from a driving trailer in push/pull service.
