In the 1970s and beginning of 1980s there was a European wide habit or rather a mania to paint
all buses, trains and trams orange throughout Europe. At least the express trains of Switzerland, Austria, Italy,
Belgium, Holland and France were all orange. This one may have been one of the last totally orange coloured
express trains. This rake consisted of only SNCB Belgian coaches, although it was led by a Luxemburgian locomotive.
