Alpha Trains is also responsible for maintaining the trains.

TX Logistik CEO Mirko Pahl said: “The new multisystem locomotives, which represent another clear step forward in the continuing modernisation of our rolling stock, provide high operating efficiency.

“At the same time, with their sensor technology, they contribute to the digitalisation of rail freight traffic, because these sensors make it possible to implement the next step in forward-looking maintenance.”
