Liveries and Paint schemes

Liveries and Paint schemes

This is the index page for information on liveries and paint schemes. If you like to add your own pictures to this page (GIF only, please - not bulky formats such as BMP!), please: I would also be happy about any additional blank drawings, especially of European rolling stock!

Railway Liveries

These are attempts to demonstrate all liveries of a given railway on small "example vehicles", such as a Locomotive 2000, a MaK diesel locomotive, and a 26.4 m passenger car, all drawn slightly simplified and at a scale of 6 pixels per meter.

The DB pop colours

Liveries for specific rolling stock

New! These pages now work like the "European Railway Picture Gallery". I have created a short text file describing each picture. For some pictures I was unable to find out the author - please contact me if you made these pictures and would like to be mentioned!
