One type of driving van trailer (DBpbzfa 766) has been given a preliminary approval for push-pull operations with the new multi engine Traxx locomotives, valid until 26 February 2015. The Sudostbayernbahn has three such driving vans in its fleet. Another three are of slightly older type DBpbzfa 765.5 and need various modifications before they are cleared to operate with 245 series locomotives. DB Regio 245 012 (allocated in Mühldorf) was seen today pushing its train (RB 27040) from Mühldorf to Munich.
DB has performed a one-time only test with a 245 series locomotives in freight services. Interesting images can be found here of DB Regio 245 014 with a tank car train (and a spare locomotive in the back).
Newbie 245 015 arrived at Mühldorf on 25 November.
Last weekend, DB Regio 245 010 was photographed in Landshut with a special train (DPE 5199). Behind the red machine was Lokomotion 185 663.
