    I did a test and found a re-paint for the Talent 2 in red. Looks and feels great. The repaint unfortunately replaces the silver, so you have to accept that when you make this change. My suggestion is now to add officially as a second option DB Red livery for this unit. It made perfect sense as its a common sight. I also applied another modification to the train, more snow buildup. Again perfect, great outcome.

    ...But the trains used on this route are only in silver in real life. I'd like to see them in red as well, but only on a route they drive in red colors in real life.

    Oh on this route? The German forum said it was a common variant but not specified. I will try it out for a bit as it's a change of color. But I like it

    It's almost always in red, so that is correct. However, on some lines in real life like this one it has a special color.

    You're all right. Most of Germany uses DB's standard "Traffic Red", but the S-Bahn Mitteldeutschland we see in Rapid Transit is a subsidiary who has its own paint scheme, the silver with green, or alternatively, red doors.

    Another special regional livery would be this one:
