  • Loco-Revue sheet No. 56 / 121966 - 65 a 5. (former series).
    Note: on the photo of the sheet, the fact that the white band passes over the side panels nuts, therefore lower than on the model, seems rather an exception.

  • Affectations at Eurocity 64
  • Ferrovissimo No. 17 and 18 of November 2007 and January 2008
