Experimental ALEX

ALEX trains were very useful for trying out shots that might not work. It was too big a risk for a freight and you never knew if or when one would show up anyway. ALEXs were more predictable and it wasn’t the end of the world if the shot didn’t work. Fortunately this one was successful.

223.068 climbed away from Oberkotzau with ALX 84121, the 17:40 from Hof to München on 7 May 2016.
