RE: [z_scale] Re: Marklin 88961
- As I understand it, the factory only painted one locomotive in the "photo
gray" paint scheme. The colors were chosen to show off the various parts of
the locomotive on black and white film. Once the photo shoot was done, they
repainted the locomotive into the correct colors for the railroad it was
being delivered to and sent it on its way.

First thanks to Andy, for his help The Z Collection will from now on be a
point of reference.
...but, it seems 88961 is after all a DRG cl 86 something to do with the
photographic grey colour scheme. So another question, when was this colour
scheme introduced and for how long.
Z: model railroading on a smaller scale.
