In October 2008, mgw Services ordered its second electric locomotive, being a Traxx AC2 machine. Unlike the first one, Siemens 21315 - mgw 183 500
that is only homolgated for Germany and Austria, this unit had to serve mgw customers in Sweden and Norway.
The blue painted locomotive was built during the summer of 2009 and was first spotted outside that factory in August 2009. During the following months the unit visited Siemens test-center in Wegberg-Wildenrath. On 25.11.2009 it was delivered to mgw and on 29.11.2009 the 185 642 designated machine arrived in Hallsberg, Sweden, where it is stationed since then. First operator to hire the 642 was the Swedish department of TX Logistik.
