Austrian 1141 class electric locomotive art

As featured on the back cover of the 1961 Märklin catalog.  A total 30 of this Bo-Bo type were built between 1955 and 1958.  Output was 2,840 kW (3,800 hp) at the one hour rating, service weight 83 tonnes and top speed 110 km/h (68 mph). Final withdrawal was in 2003.

This shows an example in the original tannengrün (pine green) livery, later replaced with the blutorange (blood orange) livery.
