Late November, Akiem 75109 and 75110, its pioneers from Slovakia, were sighted at the Cottbus works. Now we know why they were there. Two days ago, the units were again sighted in Cottbus, this time by Theo Stolz. In the last couple of months both units received a paint job and now sport the silver Akiem livery. Now all Akiem BB75100 locomotives carry this silver colour scheme.
