The first ?BB Vectron locomotive 1293 200 was covered with adhesives foils in the “Nightjet” design in May 2021. The decoration promotes the new “Nightjet” trains, which are to be in service from the end of 2022. The locomotive is equipped with the country package DE-AT-PL-NL-BE-CZ-SK-HU-RO-BG-HR-RS.
Since the end of 2016, the ?BB has been one of the few large transport companies that operate a dense and attractive night train service with popular destinations such as Brussels, Hamburg, Venice and Warsaw. The ?BB has ordered 13 trains with seven carriages each from Siemens Mobility to further expand services in Europe and offer more comfort and sustainability. As a first step, the locomotives will be used for connections from Austria and Germany to Italy.
