    In the Beginning It Was Green ... 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. The early paint scheme for this German State Railroad express locomotive borrowed greatly from the Prussian paint scheme of the provincial railroad period: The basic color was green, the wheels and the frame were dark red, and only a few small parts were black.
