In Hamburg, you can find just about anything, in particular locomotives that have no business at all being where they are. A good example would be this CFL Cargo locomotive which is just meeting a class 474 EMU train of the Hamburg S-Bahn in Wilhelmsburg. CFL (Chemins de fer luxembourgeois) is the railway of Luxembourg, but seems to have gotten international ambitions. The locomotive itself is a boring standard Bombardier TRAXX F140 AC2, german class 185.1 (hence I decided to post a more interesting picture, even if it makes the locomotive harder to see) on lease from Angel Trains Cargo. It still has the old blue-silver ATC paint scheme, while newer locomotives (like the ones in Aachen) tend be turquoise instead of blue.
