Some pictures from internet, different series (ribs are all the way to the top) - but that does not matter for the paint scheme.

Some pix of your model's prototype (T478.1015).
Found with a little help of Google.

Now correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that the red livery was introduced in the 70's. The yellow stripe (as in the photo provided by LVG1) was added in the early 80's to make the locomotive more visible (I heard the colour was hard to see at night). This later developed into a wide stripe all the way around the locomotives by the late 80's. However, units in previous paint schemes were always present. So the paint you are curious about would be appropriate for the 70's and 80's. At least until 1988 when the numbering system changed.

I can find some old pictures, but those need to be scanned first.


Yup. Been through hundreds of pictures. Only found 3 with that locomotive and paint scheme. I'm looking for pics of it pulling a train.

Found some. These photos are from 1979 to 1983. Unfortunately all passenger trains; they pulled freight as well.
