Over the period 1997 - 2000 eighty locomotives of Class 145 designed for freight and light passenger service appeared on Deutsche Bahn lines. Because their conception and reliability have fully satisfied the requirements of the supply contract, further locomotive classes based on the above mentioned type, have been leaving the Bombardier Transportation-owned plant (formerly Adtranz) in Kassel, not only for the DB but for other operators.
A new livery - the NetLog locomotive 145-CL 031 at 28 September 2001 on plant Kassel. The loco was handed over to the company at one day before.
