In January 2007, Siemens received its first electric locomotive order from Vogtlandbahn, a subsidiary of Länderbahn. The order comprises four Eurosprinter locomotives that were delivered as early as November 2007. Running at up to 230 km/h, the vehicles will be used in passenger service, e.g. on the Regensburg – Munich line. The proven technology of the production locomotives and the short delivery times were decisive factors for winning the order.
