    "Pop" coaches

    Author: Martin Silz, Essen, Germany


    In the early 1970s the Bundesbahn wanted to repaint their rolling stock in a more friendly and lighter livery. Before the ocean blue/beige livery came up, there were tests with the so called "Pop livery".

    The body of the coach was pebble grey(RAL 7032), the frame black (RAL 9005). A coloured ribbon between the windows showed the type of coach (similar to the current DBAG livery, but now the ribbon between the windows shows the type of train).

    The RAL number given below gives the colour of the ribbon between the windows. Above the frame there was a narrow grey line (RAL 7032) and above this line a second line of the same colour as the ribbon between the windows.

    No loco ever was painted in Pop livery.
