Where’s The Pantograph?

Whenever I see a Traxx diesel, I can’t help wondering where the pantograph has gone. The external design of these locos is clearly based on the Traxx electrics (should that be electrixx?) of classes 145, 185 and 186. The latest version is the Traxx ME, with four small diesel engines instead of one big one, now in service with DB Regio and rapidly replacing the venerable class 218s.

Class leader 245.001 worked RE 57510 west from Geltendorf at Schwabhausen on 25 April 2016. The 13:53 from München to Füssen was formed of double-deck stock, another recent change.
