1016 030-7 at Innsbruck.

The ÖBB Class 1016 locomotives were built by Siemens Krauss-Maffei Lokomotiven Gmbh in München, a subsidiary of  Siemens to operate on the DB & ÖBB systems at 15,000 V ac. There were a total of 50 built. They ride on Bo-Bo trucks, the locos are rated at 6400 kW, 8580 hp, weigh 86 metric tonnes and have a top speed of 230 km/h, 143 mph. 1016 030-7 carries works number 20378 and entered service in April 2001.

Looking very similar to the previous photo taken 3 days earlier. Innsbruck still in the rain on Friday  September 27th, 2002.   1016 030-7 pauses in platform 4 with EC164 (Salzburg-Zurich) while1142 630-1 waits in platform 3 with R5106 (stopper to Kufstein). The weather was so bad that you would never know that there are mountains surrounding the station.
