Product Features and Details
Diesel locomotive class 2048 of the Austrian Federal Railways.

The introduction of the new train "Austro Takt" in June 1991 caused a shortage of diesel locomotives with electric train heating at the ÖBB. In order to release the 2043 and 2143 series for passenger train services, 34 DB locomotives series 211 were procured. The locomotives remotorized with a Caterpillar engine hauled goods trains and provided shunting services in Wels, Vienna North, Amstetten and Krems.
