New name and new livery for Mercitalia Rail

New name and new livery for Mercitalia Rail

With the reopening of the Bombardier plant in Vado Ligure after the Christmas holidays, were handed over the E 483 314 and 315 produced for Akiem and leased by Mercitalia Rail, the new freight division of the Italian State Railways (Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane).
The two locomotives belong to an order of 7 units, for goods services of the new company of the Italian Railways FS Group that has not yet shown what its long-term fleet rejuvenation strategy will be. So, will the new name, the new red livery, and these new lease locomotives be the start of the long-awaited fleet upgrade?
The E 483 314 and 315 have made the usual railway line tests from Vado Ligure to Genoa Sestri Ponente Airport and back to Savona Doria Park, then the locomotives has been transfered to Milan SM, performing the first freight service with a train load of steel.
