On 03.05.2017 railfreight operator Lineas, formerly known as B Logistics, has presented its first locomotive sporting its new Lineas logos and colors. The images show Railpool > Lineas 186 293 during its presentation at Antwerp. After a festive roll-out, the machine was taken to the freight yard to take on its freight train.
The 186 293 is the first of six locomotives in the fleet of Lineas that will get a full wrapping. Next one up is a ‘Reeks 77’ shunter (no. 7789) that will be ready by the end of the week. During the next weeks a second 77, a ‘Reeks 13’ electric, a ‘Class 66’ and a TRAXX locomotive that can be used in France will be ‘Lineased’ too. Very special is that it is one of the very few Railpool lease locomotives that is wrapped completely.
We are happy to be part of this project. Railcolor Design was given the chance to consult on the application of the proposed designs and is responsible for the project management of the wrapping of all six locomotives.
