    Well-Known Colors, Quaint Details... The first standard design locomotive from the German State Railroad's comprehensive concept was the class 01 that was built starting in 1925. At that time it looked a bit more quaint than what we know today: older design boiler, small Wagner smoke deflectors, riveted tender with a raised superstructure, and gas lighting. This locomotive already had the well-known paint scheme in black and dark red, but it still had the technical details of the original version.
