E04 004, Augsburg, June 1965
From the Geoff Plumb Collection of original slides. During the International Transport Exhibition (IVA) at München in June 1965, the four prototypes of class E03 Co-Co high speed electric locos were on display and also conducting test runs between München and Augsburg at up to 200kph. E03 003 was on static display at the exhibition site whilst two locos were used on the test runs with one loco as standby. Here, E03 004 has arrived in Augsburg (?) with a test run. The locos later became 103 001 to 004 while the production locos were 103/1 class. June 1965. Photo by John F. Robinson. Collect Slide No. JFR60.
