Veolia E186: unit 181 and 182 > sold to Railpool  
Check the Railpool E 186 section for more information.

However, the 181 and 182 were not handed over to Veolia, reason unknown. Bombardier decided to hire them to operator ITL, that used both engines for services in Germany and the Netherlands. The Veolia logos were covered with grey vinyls and some ITL logos were put on. This situation lasted until 30.06.2009, then ITL returned both engines to Bombardier.


From July to October 2009 Bombardier used the 181-182 for its own activities. Both were regular visitors of the Hennigsdorfer test tracks, serving as dead weight or as transporter of for example new Talent2 train sets. The Veolia logos did not return anymore...


Then in November 2009, both units were called back to Kassel. They got a complete repaint and were then outshopped in the colors of leasing company Railpool.
