the EuroSprinter: second overhaul  
On 10.07.2009, the work shops of Dessau completed the second large overhaul of the EuroSprinter. Appearantly, MRCE Dispolok saw enough potential fur this unique locomotive for the next eight years to spend money on an extensive check-up. This time, also the looks of the machine were altered; Its Dispolok-yellow cabs referred to a corporate identity that was replaced by black few years before, so it had to be updated somehow. The end result was a design with two different faces: the body was painted in antracit grey, the cabs got a light grey color. The front surface of cab 1 was painted silver, that one of cab 2 got a magenta colour. On both sides the EuroSprinter typeface was put on a again, but again on both sides in two different colours; Magenta on the 1-2 side, light grey on the 2-1 side.

The unit made one of its first appearances in the new livery sandwiching a special train together with OBB 1216 025, the worlds fastest electric locomotive.
