Transfers are quite common in the football world and we can see the same player wear different outfits throughout his professional career. Locomotives, it turns out, are no exception. And the new special livery 472 005 of Transagent Rail in Croatia is a quite literal example of that.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup might be over, but finalists will need some time to process all the wonderful memories from the challenge.

And it looks like Croatian private operator Transagent Rail has found a good way to do just that: by creating a football livery for one of its newly acquired Class 92 locomotives.
Check out this breath-taking image of 472 005, working in tandem with 472 003 with a 1000+ ton coal train on the uphill profile in Lokve, Croatia:

The locomotive was the first one to arrive from Romania to Croatia in the beginning of the year.

Without further ado we bring you a photo gallery, dedicated to 472 005’s new football outfit:

As UK and Romanian numbers don’t really match, we prepared a full list with the corresponding designation:
