Remarks & Notes 
Re 482 # 047 (91 85 4 482 047-8 CH-IRSI) of the International Rolling Stock Investment Gmbh (IRSI) in a special "Jim Knopf" paint scheme (adhesives), pulling a train of TR Transrail and IGE ( (Internationale Gesellschaft für Eisenbahnverkehr IGE Gmbh & Co. KG). The IRSI bought this Bombardier TRAXX F140 AC2 (built in 2006 for SBB Cargo) from SBB Cargo on february first, 2020. In summer of this year, the locomotive got a revision R2 (date 04.09.20) in the SBB industrial work of Bellinzona and a new paint scheme in a dark red, similar to them of the Deutsche Bundesbahn for diesellocomotives in the 1960'. A few days later, in Germany, there were placed large advertising films on the side with a "Jim Knopf" theme (very famous and well-known fairy tale of "Jim Knopf und Lukas der Lokomotivführer" /Jim Knopf and Lukas the locomotive driver, from german writer Micheal Ende in 1960) with the inscription: "Wir sind zwar nicht Jim Knopf, aber von den Alpen bis zum Meer sind wir die Profis im Eisenbahnverkehr"/"We may not be Jim Knopf, but from the Alps to the sea we are the professionals in rail transport". Also stickers of the swiss TR Transrail and the german IGE were applied. The locomotive is approved to run in Switzerland, Germany and Austria, but has no ETCS L2 train protection system. This 5600 kW asynchrone bi-tension electrical locomotive for 15000 V 16,7 Hz and 25000 V 50 Hz AC has a maximum velocity of 140 km/h.
