Here you go, sir: http://www.prototypy.cz/?rada=749

If you click on the links under "Popis a fotografie řady 749" on the left there are pictures and such. This is a good resource site for Czech/Slovak prototypes.

Here is a video of a T478 type loco pulling some passenger cars:

I can also tell you that that model is very nice. Runs like a top.

That is one of the prototypes (both of which are in preservation today). Notice the rounded fronts and smooth sides. The rest of the series had angular fronts and fluted sides.

These locomotives are also much loved for their characteristic engine sound.


They acquired the nicknames Bardotka (i.e. Bridget Bardot), for its sleek and modern appearance at the time it was made, and Zamračená (Grumpy) because the front looks like it is frowning.

Thanks guys. Perhaps I should be more specific. I'm looking for pics (historical...like back in the day) and info in that specific paint.

Well, you have at least two of us typing chickens working on it.

This is a different locomotive, different design!
T478.1001 and 1002 were the first test prototypes, very different from the serial locomotives - sides without ribs, different front, etc.
T478.1003 - 1007 verification series - different from the test prototypes and from the 1st series.
They were testing many different technical details, you'd need 4 different shells to make 1001-1007 :)
T478.1008 - 1092 1st series.
The model is the 1st series. If you really want the prototypes or verification series, shells for those are available from Czech and they fit onto the MTB frame.
Kuehn may come also with different shells - but that has not been confirmed yet.

And a clarification at last: "Bardotka" (i.e. Brigitte Bardot) had nothing to do with its modern appearance. It was more simple than that. The front resembled breasts :grin:

The model is in a standard CSD paint scheme.
Have you asked Google? http://www.google.com/search?q=t478.1&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=-T0zUY30G8WdtQaJkIGYCg&ved=0CC4QsAQ&biw=1025&bih=778

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