Holograph on a 013 BG

Diesel engines - clockwork - 1966 and later

 

clockwork Diesels 1965 and earlier

 

The last discovery is a somehow holographic "B" at the left lower corner of the cabin's right side. This letter appears on locos after 1966 and it seems to me that it was somehow punched.  I have found B's at the 013, 013B, 013 orange and 013 bright green. This mark is (not) yet found at the 013 A and 013 E.

the blue / yellow 013 A
 
 1st version:
imprinted 1013, blue / yellow superstructure, red chassis and red clockwork housing. New switch. Indicated stairs both sides of the cabin - on the right side of the hood it says "2-B". This engine came out in 1968 together with Zoo sets - available single as well. This one still having the small dome.

just a "normal" 013 A

 
as of here all listed locos have the larger dome on the roof - thus were produced 1971 and later
 
2nd version:
as above however now black chassis. This version may appear with black clockwork as well
The hood shows cooling slots

Cabin backside shows the "Biller-B" with key and "Made in Western Germany" double lithographed rear fishplates
013 A cabin rear double printed
 
the red 013 B - "Lady in Red"
 
 1st version:
red superstructure, beige (nearly white) roof, black chassis and clockwork housing. Black cogwheel switch. All red engines had no inscription except the "Biller-B". This one was offered first in 1971

Black chassis and clockwork cover

black clockwork
 
Version 2A:
as above however now red clockwork housing and black chassis. Roof colour beige
Version 2B:
as above however now red clockwork housing and black chassis. Roof colour bright grey
 
now having a red chassis
 
Version 3A:
last version - all in red. After 1974 this version had NO axle cover and NO clockwork cover inside the cabin. Roof colour beige
Version 3B:
last version - all in red. After 1974 this version had NO axle cover and NO clockwork cover inside the cabin. Roof colour bright grey
the "normal" 013 B - all in red
 
and finally another version No.3 showing now a ruby-red frame - else identical to the above mentioned version Litho on the right side. Left side is the same - except the "Made in Western Germany" inscription
 
with ruby-red frame / chassis right side of the hood

The colour-patterns of  the following listed Diesels were NEVER described nor appeared in any listing.
 
 
the bright green 013
 
Version 1: the bright green 013 with black clockwork housing and black chassis, roof beige, black cogwheel switch, lithography as shown at the red 013 B Version 2:
red chassis and red clockwork housing. At least this model still has the cabin-internal clockwork cover - but NO axles covers.
the bright green 013 having a black chassis and clockwork

 
Version 3:
This version had NO axle cover and NO clockwork cover inside the cabin.
 
the bright green 013 A possible 4th version would have a black chassis and a red clockwork cover. Theory so far only - but who knows???
 
Version 4 (or it would be 2 in fact): just a mix of the above listed versions - red clockwork housing and black chassis. So far only theory - but most likely to appear the other day.
 
the orange 013
 
1st version:
orange superstructure, black chassis and red clockwork housing, roof beige, cog wheeled switch, lithography
as shown at the 013 B.
2nd version:
red chassis
the orange 013 - cogwheeled switch and black chassis th  orange 013 - cogwheeled switch
 
3rd version:
had NO axle covers and NO clockwork cover inside the cabin.
4th version:
having the old flat switch (which - regarding timely aspects - does not really make sense), red clockwork and chassis.
Most probably assembled after business had ceased.
 
the orange 013 - flat switch
 
   
 
the multi-coloured 013 (Biller-Outlet engine)
 

Seems to be a funny constellation - but was available as shown - NOT delivered by Biller. It is to be assumed that this engine was made from left-overs after business has ceased and sold in order to earn some extra

This engine has - so far - only appeared as clockwork version. Lithography as shown at the 013 B
