The two Vectrons purchased by Paribus Capital are planned for delivery to Sweden by the end of this week. This photo, taken on 30 November 2013, shows 193 922 in Mönchengladbach. Together with 193 921, these are Vectrons hitherto used by Siemens for testing purposes. Paribus Capital is to hire them to Railpool, which in turn is to hire them to Blå Tåget, the operator of expresses between Uppsala, Stockholm and Göteborg.
Also by early December the first of four Vectrons ordered by boxXpress.de was ready. This is 193 840, exhibited at transport logistik in summer 2013 in MRCE black livery. This was to announce the fact that MRCE had ordered 15 Vectrons, but 193 840 was not, in the end, one of the locomotives chosen to form part of this batch.
