DB 189: GZ1000 project  
In the weekend of 30 and 31 November 2008, Railion performed trials with a 1000 meter freight train over the BetuweRoute, from Oberhausen to Rotterdam. This trial is part of the GZ1000 project, with which the DB is evaulating the every day feasability of extra long freight trains. The project also included a test with an 800 meter train between Hamburg and Denmark that year.

For the Dutch trial, locomotive 189 072 was selected, therefore it got the GZ1000 markings.
