1116 065 with Dispolok markings on its way
In November 2003, pending the delivery of the fourth batch, Dispolok temporarily extended its fleet with five 1116 series locomotives rented from the Austrian OBB. Up till May 2004 1116 061-065 ran for Dispolok, decoreated with yellow and black Dispolok logos. TX Logistik and the Nord-Ostsee-Bahn were the main customers operating these five red machines.
In December 2005 and January OBB 1116 066-068 also were hired by Dispolok. At that moment OBB operated four ES64F4 machines from Dispolok which they did not want to return in December 2005, so as compensation they disposed 3 red painted 1116s to Dispolok. DB Schenker was their employer during their Dispolok period.
