On 7 November 2016 a convoy formed of 16 long-withdrawn Class 1014 electrics departed from Austria, the machines bound for their last resting place in Romania. This photo was taken en route on 10 November in Curtici. The condemned electrics are 1014 002 to 005, and 007 to 018. Also forming part of this working were three ex-ÖBB Class 1142s, which were bound for a second lease of life in the hands of the Grampet Group, which already has some machines of this class in readiness for operation in Austria under the licence of its Austrian subsidiary.
