I just realized that the DB 143 is not able/allowed to pull freight trains. This is not entirely accurate - it was designed as a universal locomotive and pulled both freight and passenger trains until the federal railways of Germany were split into subcompanies such as DB Regio and DB Cargo. As DB Regio is phasing them out en masse now, some have made their way back into freight service. DB never owned 143 001 - now it's operated by EKO for ArcelorMittal, and several ex-DB Regio 143s are now pulling freight for MEG and RBH, which are mainly owned by the DB.
