These 2 versions are item numbers 2311 (blue) and 2312 (green) from the late 1980's early 1990's. Aside from the paint they are exactly the same. Mechanism is the standard BTTB/Gutzold. As with all E499 (Bobina) models there is no lighting. Instead headlights are represented with fake diamonds.

It is interesting to note that I was able to buy the green one new in a hobby shop in Brno, Czechoslovakia right after the fall of communism.

Berliner TT-Bahnen was only the distributor of these locomotives, as far as I know. They were made by Gützold.

E499 brings new opportunities. Many of the prototypes were sold to private railway companies, so many paint schemes for collectors would be possible.
It is used in more countries now than in BTTB times. Even in its "old" countries, it went through many different paint schemes during the years.

My comment primarily referes to the fact that E499 was made by Gützold and only distributed by Zeuke and Berliner TT-Bahnen.
Does Tillig own the old molds?

^^^ Not quite sure what you mean. Sorry. That E499.0 is in it's original paint scheme, but has it's post 1988 number (140 065-2 instead 0f E499 065). There where 4 locomotives that came with the E499 designation; E499.0 (140) as above, which is represented by the BTTB model

E499.1(141), which looks very similar, but has square windows (except for the prototype that used the same body shell as E499.0)

E499.2 (150)

and E499.3 (163)

There were other "499" locomotives that carried different prefixes, S, ES, also. Take a look at this site for Czech/Slovak locomotive numbering systems to make sense out of it: http://www.railfaneurope.net/misc/czechnum.htm.
