FW: another Swiss find


Chuck Higdon
 

Hi, my friend Doug asked me for some help.  I do not have a clue, but if any of you could help, a bug thanks.

 

Now, I could use a little help.............on the RBDe4/4 Electric MU sets (Collibri Zug, New Pendel Zug etc)............

 

When the design came out in the mid-80s........there were 4 prototypes (sets 2101-2104) which were painted a yellow-gold and purple...........I was able to catch pictures of these coming and going when I "staked out" the platforms at Zurich. 

The "production" sets of the RBDe4/4 power and control trailer sets had not yet begun on my 1984 visit....the fleet came on a year or two later.  There were "prototype" sets that had a couple of color schemes...........the white/blue stripe/yellow doors became the fleet colors...I heard about

another scheme that was dark green stripe on a light lime green car body.......

 

.......were there any others?? and where can I find pictures of them????

 

Thanks

Doug

 

Thanks for whatever help you can provide.
