Far-West Germany - pointduvue
The five "super Ludmillas" of class 241.8 were a fixture of freight operations in the Aachen area for several years, powering trains over the short distance between Aachen West and Montzen only. Even though they were refitted with relatively new prime movers they were known to smoke profusely. Here 241 804 accelerates a mixed freight out of the yard under the signature emissions plume. The units were displaced by the new Cobra Traxxes in December 2008.
