HGK means Häfen und Güterverkehre Köln, in english Harbors and Freight traffic Cologne, and following the general rule, you can expect to find their locomotives anywhere — sometimes even Cologne, but sometimes, like here, Hamburg Wilhelmsburg (that’s the final picture from there, by the way, then it’ll be the rest of the city). Locomotive 2065 (185 630 or 91 80 6185 630-1 D-HGK) is one of several Bombardier TRAXX 2 F140 AC2 machines in their service, and actually one of three of them parked there at the time. It is leased from Angel Trains Cargo, but was already delivered in HGK colors.
