DR DB13 question

Berlin-Wannsee station...

There were times when I was there very frequently. But it was later—late 1996 and early 1997.

Articulated double deckers were history then...
...and the main line was electrified...
...and the new tower was ready...
...and the bridge-like tower was gone...
...and the suburban trains ran more frequently and were longer and particularly more modern...

By the way:
Even the locomotive pushing the train is something special. It's one of the locomotives which were reserved for GDR's government train until the fall of the wall.
For this era, these locomotives are easily discernable by their engine room windows. While all other locomotives of the V180 family got their engine room windows replaced (two non-openable windows per side in the middle and two radiator grilles per side towards the locomotive's ends) in the 1970ies and 1980ies, the government train's locomotives kept their original openable four engine room windows per side.
Additionally, the numbers on their number plates were chromed.

Do you know if that model of the V180 was ever made by Tillig?

Except for the chrome numbers, it's the initial model of Zeuke, BTTB and Tillig, respectively.
It's the four-axle version with four engine room windows per side.

Tillig made it for Modist. Regierungszug Set - GDR government train set - article number 210102. The locomotive number was 118 550-3.

Yup I just figured that out after a bit of research.

The locomotive in the video is 118 552-9.

Deutsche Reichsbahn sold it to Regentalbahn (RBG) in Bavaria in 1992. There it got the number D06 and was used for spare parts canibalizing.

In 1998 it was sold to OnRail which resold it the same year to ITL of Dresden. ITL made it servicable again, painted it green and gave it the new number 118 002.

Unfortunately, I don't know if it's still used. I haven't seen it anymore for some years. And ITL is currently modernizing their fleet.

I only typed the number into Google.
And the third hit was following:
http://www.privat-bahn.de/V180_Lieferliste.html

The information about the use at Regentalbahn (RBG) was gathered from a magazine of 1997.
And the color at ITL was what I've seen personally.

I've searched for some images.

118 552-9 of DR as you've seen it in the video:
Image

As D06 of RBG it's seemingly on any event here. Otherwise it would stand on its siding:
Image

As 118 002 of ITL with its initial lettering together with mate 118 001:
Image

With this lettering it was used most of the time at ITL:

Obviously, it has been restored because this is the most recent image which I could find:
