DB 101 112 was presented in a classic 'Rheingold' livery on 27.03.2017; The ivory, silver and dark blue colors are a tribute to this classic Rheingold design from 1962.
It is not the first time this colorscheme is re-used in modern time. In 2014 museum locomotive E03 001 was repainted in the same Rheingold color scheme. The 101 112 can now be seen across Germany pulling DB's intercity trains. But of course, we can not wait until the locomotive makes its debut hauling matching passenger coaches..
