On 31 May 2017, Stadler officially delivered six new EURO 4000 locomotives to Alpha Trains. Four locos (335 033-036) will go on long-term hire to Portugal's Medway Logistics, the other two (335 037-038) will be leased to Ibercargo Rail, a joint venture between Comsa Rail Transport and Takargo. All six are equipped with the specific systems required for operations on the rail networks of both Spain and Portugal, enabling both operators to improve their services on cross-border connections.


For Alpha Trains, the delivery sees its fleet of EURO 4000 locomotives grow from 24 to 30. The first 24 were delivered to the operator between 2008 and 2009, and are all in operation on the Iberian peninsula. Carlos Vasconcelos, MEDWAYs President of the Board, adds: "Expanding and updating our fleet with these 4 new interoperable locomotives represents a huge step towards our business goals: it will officially mean the entrance in the Spanish market, through a focus on innovation, sustainability and modernization, which will surely be key for us on our way to turn MEDWAY into the leading freight operator in the Iberian Peninsula"
