2016-09-04 - [NL/FR] ECR transfers former DB DE6400s to Calais

Home News Archive 2016-09-04 - [NL/FR] ECR transfers former DB DE6400s to Calais

On September 3, Nicolas Beyaert captured ECR 77003 on camera while passing Hazebrouck with three former DB Cargo Nederland Class 6400 diesel locomotives in tow. The three locomotives have been acquired by EuroTunnel, increasing its fleet of MaK locomotives to 10. The locos in question are:

0008 – ex DB-Cargo 6450
0009 – ex DB-Cargo 6451
0010 – ex DB-Cargo 6447

Locomotives 0008 and 0009 have been repainted in the orange and grey livery we know from other EuroTunnel MaK locomotives, but 0010 has received the blue and silver Europorte livery. The latter will be used for shunting purposes at the shunting yard at Calais-Fréthun. In late 2010, EuroTunnel also acquired two DE6400 locomotives from DB Cargo Nederland (then still named DB Schenker Rail Nederland): the designated 6456 and 6457, which now runs as 0006 and 0007 respectively.
