Modility and Metrans present locomotive in modility design

The first locomotive in modility design is on the tracks! Since February, a Siemens Vectron by Metrans has been operating throughout Europe, in particular between Hamburg and Eastern Europe. The "look and feel" of the locomotive was developed together with the design agency Railcolor. The message is clear and simple: go online, book a slot, that's it.

Hendrik-Emmanuel Eichentopf: "A locomotive which is nearly 20 meters long in our colors, with our logo - that's an indescribable feeling. A huge thank you goes to the Metrans team for giving us the opportunity to put our stamp on this new Vectron, and to Railcolor Design for the great cooperation in the design process."
