Akiem 187 011 in Captrain design, 187 014 in Akiem design and a model from 2013 with an imaginary livery
In 2013, Lease company Akiem from France decided to add Traxx AC3 locomotives to its fleet. They ordered four locomotives. Unit 187 011-014 were built in 2014 but not delivered promptly as the Germany homologation was still pending at that time. 187 011 and 012 had their maiden run in December 2015, the other two machines on 14.01.2016.
187 011, 012 and 013 got the colors and logos of Captrain before they left the factory. 187 014 got a special design in the corporate colors of Akiem with corresponding Flex Panels.
