In June 2013, BLS Cargo
from Switzerland and ERS Railways (Freightliner)
made public that are going to cooperate closely in moving freight traffic between Rotterdam (NL) and Melzo (I).
This has consequences for the disposition of several modern locomotives. The number of locomotives available for Transalp services from the Netherlands to Italy is limited. BLS Cargo does not own such locomotives itself, and is not planning to retrofit any, so it had to look elsewhere.
Finally, BLS Cargo closed a deal with railCare, the rail operating subsidiary of Swiss retailer Coop. Since 2012, they hire Railpool 186 104, 105, 108 and 109 with Transalp-package (in 2013, Railpool additionally hired 186 101 to railCare). However, railCare only operates trains in Switzerland, so locomotives with such an extensive country specific package are not a neccesssity. Therefore BLS Cargo has offered railCare a batch of its  465 series locomotives instead: 465 015-018. The fifth locomotive will be a Re425 series engine. [/edit] They will replace the Railpool 186s, that will be hired to BLS Cargo for the ERSR deal. - PT/EvA
From October 2013 until the 2013/2014 time table change, the Railpool 186s will be exchanged.  Most likely the 186s will loose their diamond/minirals/crystal-stickers
