The test runs for the 494 of Bombardier - whose entry into service is getting closer – start again.
On 17 January the 494 505 in gray and red livery was transferred from Vado Zona Industriale to Livorno. As you can see in the photo by Arbri Allushaj, the transfer took place with its own resources even though there was an E.652.168 as spare.
Tests in asymmetrical double traction with the 494 040 in gray and black livery, will begin in Tuscany on the same lines already affected by the races trial of the E.652.168.
Also in this case, the presence of a spare locomotive is envisaged.
