On the 18th of March 2008, two brandnew grey Euro Cargo Rail locos left the NedTrain workshop at Tilburg (Netherlands). Loco 77004 and 77006 were picked up by ERS 6612 and placed them into a containertrain to Venlo. In Venlo, the locos were taken over by MWB V1801 and a few wagons for transport. This train went southbound Germany to Kehl (near Strasbourg). Purpose of the transport are some tests, afterwards the locos will return to Tilburg (NL).

Thanks to Martin and Andre for their pictures!
