ES64U2 010 crash

TX logos on ES64U2 042-044 (see title picture)
The three machines in the title picture, never ran with the TX logos they're decorated with in that image. The picture was made in Munchen-Allach during a media event of TX Logistik and Siemens, and for the occasion the machines got TX logos up front and large logos on their sides. Before they left the factory gates however, they were all removed and the machines were handed over to other customers! ES64U2 042, 043 and 044 therefore never had www.dispolok.com markings up front.
