Since last week, the Austrian railways have released to first 1216 series locomotive, repainted and re-equipped for Railjet services to Italy. The livery is similar to the 1216s that are being used for Railjets to the Czech Republic, only with an extra red stripe on both fronts. This red detail is also visible on the driving trailer of the new Railjet rake.
The images show the locomotive together with a new Railjet rake for Italy (rake no.52) and in normal service, pulling the EC30 from Vienna to Venezia vv.
