2015-11-27 - [NL] Modern history: ECR 77005 on test

Home News Archive 2015-11-27 - [NL] Modern history: ECR 77005 on test

In 2010, the NedTrain workshop in Tilburg was still open and many Class 66 locomotives were still in the process of final assembly there after having been built by EMD in London, Canada. On some occassions, test runs on the Dutch network were held with the new locomotives, even when they were not configured for operations in the Netherlands.

The image shows ECR77005 (configured for D/B/F) on such a test run. A rare sight!
