Macquarie Rail (former CBRail): E186  
in short
1st order

In 2006 and 2007, lease companies really started to invest in multi systems electrics for international freight services in Europe. Like Angel Trains Cargo, CBRail decided to invest in Bombardier products: press release 08.02.2006. This order included the new Traxx 2E MS sub type, capable of running under all 4 common catenary systems in Europe. At the end of 2007 another 10 multi system electrics were ordered. Both orders include two different country specific configurations. The D/A/NL/BE homologated machines will operate on the corridors from the harbours of Rotterdam and Antwerp towards Germany. The D/A/CH/I homologated machines will cross the Alps on the German-Italian freight corridor.

These E 186s, as most CBRail machines, are easy to recognize by their light grey basic colour. In September, the very first CBRail MS locomotive left the Bombardier Kassel works in Germany.

The first 10 D/A/CH/I homologated locomotives were originally designated E 186 151-160, but on demand of Italian rail way authority Cesifer, they were re-assigned as E 186 901-910, for easier identification.

Macquarie Rail (former CBRail) E186: Pick a colour!  
It took CBRail quite some effort to decide, or better not to decide, with which colours they wanted their E186 series to be delivered with. In February 2006 the press statement of the first included the publication of a machine painted in purple, silver and dark red. However, at the Innotrans international railway fair 2006, in Berlin, wooden models and canvas prints were presented at the Bombardier stands, showing future CBRail locomotives in orange and blue.


the ever changing artist impressions...

In August and September 2007, the very first locomotives came from the production line, painted in... a light grey basic tone, looking a bit unfinished. CBRail did not agree on a colour scheme on time, so Bombardier had to decide for it self, resulting in a neutral colour. It provides indeed a neutral basis for customers of CBRail, when they want to apply their logos in these machines!


the very first machine, E 186 151, was transported to Italy in September 2007
