[DE] Action time for the NBS Erfurt-Halle/Leipzig rescue locos

Home Bombardier TRAXX DE (ME) TRAXX DE PRESS [DE] Action time for the NBS Erfurt-Halle/Leipzig rescue locos

For rescue services on the Erfurt-Halle/Leipzig high speed line, DB Fernverkehr hires two Class 285 TRAXX diesel locos from Pressnitztalbahn. For this purpose, locos 285 101-5 and 285 102-4 have been equipped with automatic couplers.

Yesterday (January 6), ICE 1632 stranded on the NBS Erfurt-Halle/Leipzig and required the help of one of the rescue locos. This was the first time one of the locos had to come into action. On-board of the train, the rescue locos was also noticed (see Tweet). Unfortunately, a malfunctioning safety system also required the use of the second locomotive.
