CFL Traxx AC1: Traxx on hire  
As the Luxembourgish railways suffered from a traction shortage right away, and would take at least another year and a half before the new 4000 series locomotives would be delivered, also a short term solution had to be found. It was decided to contact Angel Trains Cargo leasing that could get 6 new Traxx locomotives on a very short notice. In the Spring of 2003 then 6 blue and silver machines, equipped with two extra pantographs and the necessary systems on board, came to Luxembourg, to be used for both freight and passenger services. After almost two year of service they were returned to ATC in the Spring of 2005, but not all were able to fully detach form Luxembourg. 185 523 is still in service for CFL Cargo for example.
