Per 19.05.2004 the OBB 2016-locos of the second batch (2016 071-100) have their approval for Austria, so now they can go into service! Completed untill now were the 2016 071, 073-087. The 2016 072 is rented out to the PRESS and is still in Germany. Soon the rest of the locos will follow, except for the 2016 090, which will be delivered to the StLB as 2016 901. The gap that the 2016 090 leaves behind will be filled by another loco later this year.
