DB 189: on the BetuweRoute  
Between 2003 and 2007, several 189 series locomotives visited the Netherlands. Especially the BetuweRoute was a popular destination. 189 004, 007, 010 and 013 were frequent visitors, used for trials that would eventually lead to homologation of the 189 series in Holland and at the same they could be used to evaluate the BetuweRoute infrastructure and train detection systems. 189 016 was assigned to the official BetuweRoute test train, from June 2006 to December 2006. It got special logos for this.
