Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One more note if you want to catch a Ludmila in Western Europe, hurry. With the severe recession, DB is disposing of theirs quickly.

The DB-owned freight Ludmillas have been largely withdrawn from cross-border services after the electrification of the Montzen route, however, they continue on domestic runs. DB only disposes of those locos that are due for general inspections (since spring this year) -- then again, I believe their number now fell under 100. (Of course, the above only applies to the freight version, the class 234  passenger Ludmillas aren't affected by the recession.) There are some private operators with Ludmillas, I don't know what their plans are.
