MRCE ES64U2: 3 locomotives with remote control  
The very first locomotive with remote control was numbered ES64U2 080, note the large cabin numbers!

service numbers ES64U2 080-082
Although there has always been a very strong rumour about Siemens planning five ES64U2 locomotives with remote control (an indication could be: Siemens works number 20783 and 20784 are still unused up till today..), only three were built in 2003: ES64U2 080-082, all operated by CargoServ in Austria. Only by small distinctive features one can recognize a RC-operated machine: larger cab numbers and small blinking lights close to the head lights.
