On 31 August 2016, Gysev Cargo Zrt. will return the Taurus electric locomotive it has leased for the past two years, to its lessor Mitsui Rail Capital Europe (MRCE). The green-yellow-white coloured rail vehicle was the first advertising loco of Gysev Cargo.

The locomotive which has carried out rail freight transport in Hungary and Austria in the past two years has been leased from MRCE since September 2014. The loco was decorated with the advertising foil in November 2014 and was ceremoniously introduced to the public on 3 December.

The last official trip of the loco still carrying Gysev Cargo livery took place between Komárom and Sopron at the front of a goods train transporting bulk metal.
