Prototype information

Teal Turquoise Ludmilla – A Striking Dash of Color. The reunification and the merger of the two German state railroads into the German Railroad, Inc. (DB AG) resulted in the ex DR locomotives and cars being repainted in the former DB's paint scheme. The "Ludmilla" locomotive with road number 234 304-4 represented something special since it was the only locomotive that was not painted in the usual Chinese red with a white "bib". Instead, it was given a teal turquoise paint scheme that still causes arguments among railroad fans. In the final analysis it remains a question of taste whether this paint scheme is beautiful or not; road number 234 304-4 in its teal turquoise paint scheme was certainly a striking dash of color in the monotony of red.
