The stains come painted on from the factory? Pretty cool :thumbup:

Initially all of these train sets were emerald green (German: smaragdgrün) and had light grey roofs.
In the early 1980'ies (I think, from 1982 on) the color of the roofs was changed into roe brown (German: rehbraun).
The only train sets with different liveries were those recolored for Halle S-Bahn (suburban railroad). They were orient red (German: orientrot). I'm not sure if they were used elsewhere, too.

Further liveries did not exist.

These cars have never been used in the region where I live. So I'm not too familiar with them. I'm afraid, I don't know an appropriate answer to your questions.

I've searched for some prototype photos.
May be, they could answer your questions?

Probably the airhorn was under the car body initially. So it's not visible on the images. But in any case there was an airhorn.

"smaragdgrün" = emerald green
"rehbraun" (roofs) = roe brown

"Roe" and "doe" or "fawn" do not have to be the same...

Words can be deceiving depending on the native tongue. Here in the USA, "roe" sounds like fish eggs, a "doe" is a female deer, and a "fawn" is a baby deer, male or female. Come to think of it, most roe, when fried up, is a tannish white color, although I would be surprised if that's what they meant... :lol:
