The Nightpiercer is back

28.05.2020: the return of the Nightpiercer! The creation of the special 'night' version of the SBB Cargo International design, back in 2017, became a true hype. Although - or maybe the despite? - Hupac 193 492 and Nightpiercer design only existed for several months, it is popular until this day.

Nightpiercer 1 (in the front) vs Nightpiercer 2 - Daniel Schärer


The second series of Vectron locomotives for SBB Cargo International that we've created also has a blue base paint, so we just could not the opportunity go by, to recreate the 'legendary' locomotive.

Above and below you see 193 532 'Nightpiercer 2' - a little different, but very much the same as the original. Enjoy, and happy hunting.
