One of the goals with the Taurus fleet of Siemens ES 64 U and ES 64 U2 machines was for ÖBB (Austrian Federal Railways) to become a leading provider of motive power, renting their machines out. That didn’t work too well, because ÖBB seems very unwilling to take on anyone as a customer who might be a competitor to themselves. German ITL and Czech ČKSD–Intrans did qualify and are renting a total of five machines together, such as 1116 238, passing through Hamburg Wilhelmsburg here.
