The Westfälische Landes-Eisenbahn (WLE) decided to order a new EuroRunner in 2006. The machine was delivered to Lippstadt on March 7th 2007, painted bright orange, with white inscriptions and striping, number 22. First service for this engine was performed on March 15th. In November the WLE 22 appeared to be refitted for passenger services. Therefore an EuroRunner needs to be refitted with a ZS-container in stead of the enlarged fuel tank. That means the fuel capacity is reduced from 4000 to 2500 litres. Remarkable is that the WLE 22, during its construction, was painted in the livery Nord-Ostsee-Bahn GmbH, in white, yellow and blue. It even had a NOB designation: DE2000-04.
During the spring of 2008, WLE decided to order a second EuroRunner unit; WLE 23 was delivered to the WLE in June 2009, fitted with radio control. WLE 22 got this equipment too (in July and August 2008) and during its absence WLE hired Siemens demonstrator ER 20-2007.
