All the ME locomotives remain in service in 2014, with the exception of one unit which was scrapped after a fire. However, it is expected that the ME locomotives and the last passenger coaches in service will be replaced by IC3 trainsets when the IC4 trainsets take over intercity services.
Currently,[when?] the units are painted in DSB's blue/red livery. The locos are technically very identical to the NSBDi4.
