Very hard to obtain also. Worth every penny!

VT18.16 is my absolute favorite of all kinds of rail vehicles.
It was the dream of my childhood to drive such train, eventually.

But this thread lacks some prototype images...

The prototype train in Sweden:

Additionally, there was another color of it. I couldn't find any image of it on the internet. But one time I've seen a black-and-white photo of VT18.16.02 in it's initial livery. It was completely dark (I guess, red) and had some thin light (I guess, white) stripes above and below the windows and at the lower edge of the side walls.

In 2002 (May) when I went to Germany (again), I took a short trip to Belin and went to see different (S-Bahn) stations to try my luck and find different trains than I normally encountered in Frankfurf auf Main. At Berlin-Lichtenberg I saw one of these trains (probably was a museum preserved sample) parked on the auxiliary tracks next to the repair shop, just parked there (who knows for how long), looking pretty. Very impressive train! I think I took some pictures (on film) of the train. I have to dig in my boxes where I keep all my photos, magazines, books, etc and see if I'll find any. I'm thinking to buy one of these models, but I can't decide which version, maybe I will settle for the DR (IV) one before it dissapears.

Absolutely awesome model. Ive seen a model painted in black - dont know if it was a custom paint job or very limited version from Kres.

To ConducTTor: KRES makes fine models, don't they?

The train has been parked there since 1997 (...or 1996?). When I started my further training to become a locomotive engineer (what I unfortunately failed), the train still stood at Wriezener Bahnhof very close to Ostbahnhof. When this further training ended, the train stood where it still is. I also took some pictures.
Did you know that another train of this type is (or was?) relatively close? DB's historic train of this type had it's regular track at the repair shops of Berlin-Lichtenberg (they are southwest of the train station, close to S-Bahn station Nöldnerplatz, not visible from there—what you mean, are former freight or storage tracks). Unfortunately, this track is not visible from public territory. I'm not sure if the train is still there since it is not operable anymore.

I'm not sure. But I think, it was a very limited run from Kres.

Unfortunately, this statement doesn't fit for Kres' model of the prototype train (VT18.16.01). The prototype had different doors.

This description could be a bit misleading.

"Vindobona" is the name of the train Berlin—Praha (Prague)—Wien (Vienna). It was launched in the early 1950'ies and still runs. This train was operated by various train-sets of DR, ČSD and ÖBB and was changed into a locomotive-hauled train in the late 1970'ies or early 1980'ies.
But it is not the name of this particular type of trains.

On the other hand, besides the "Vindobona" this type of trains operated several other connections to Czechoslovakia, Sweden, Denmark, West Berlin and within the GDR.

So, equating this train with the name "Vindobona" is actually wrong.
