    So during my livestream last night I ran an empty coal service from Finnentrop to Hagen with a BR 185. It was the 1300 'ish service off Finnentrop. Once underway I thought we should see the Power move stabled in a siding before it starts its run in the afternoon to Krutzel (hope I spelt it correctly). Well as we approached the siding where the locos were stabled, to my surprise not only was my pink ONE HR143 in the consist but a custom liveried BR101....... :o Yes a first for me. Let alone seeing a randomly chosen Custom BR 101 But it was a freaking BR101 on the end of the consist. I have never seen the BR 101 layered in on the rear of the Power move (10 am off Hagen for those interested).
    A couple of weeks ago I / we had the BR204 appear in the consist of the power move and although it rarely happens the MRCE 185.5 appears on the rear. The full consist was BR155, BR143, HR143, BR185, BR185 & BR101. I was like WTF!! So I stopped my train and walked back to the siding and grabbed a shot. Also to make sure 100% it was a BR101 I went in the cab and did the only thing I knew that it would tell me its a 101. I opened and closed the door several times. Great sound of the door closing on this loco.
    Has anyone else had the BR 101 on the rear of the power move?
    Definitely a first for me for the BR101 appearing and to see a custom liveried Br101 (out of the 3 or 4 liveries I have for it).

    We do need more of these moves in the German routes and in the UK and US routes as well. Quite often watching Virtual Railfan you see sometimes a 10 loco lash up light engine move.

    It certainly was a first for me seeing it too. Had the 204 the other week and have had your liveries ( need to get more German liveries downloaded) but to date don't remember ever seeing the BR 101in the consist

    Its quite funny which locos land in this consist. I had a crazy combination with 185.5, 101, 204 and 143 :D

    Don't know about the service, but i've never seen an AI 101 with a repaint.

    I once saw 4 Orient Red 143s whilst driving on a west German route. So substitutions do happen. Personally I really want the ability of when and where we see Creator club liveries appearing in.

    I have experienced that too!
    Also mentioned on another thread.
    Since I got repaints of the DB101 on Creator's Club, this locomotive appears heading freight trains on timetables!
    This is really strange and wrong!.

    As to other locomotives models used on freights it is OK, like the BR143

    Oddly fitting seeing how the real 101 112-1 was scrapped.

    The only thing you'll see in the US for this, is seeing dead units (or static units) on unused sidings in yards

    I have to admit now,... I was wrong!
    But also surprised!
    Seeing a YT video of Hamburg Hbf, this appeared!
    It was the only one.

    A DB 101 hauling a freight train!

    I usually see lot of train videos, being most of them from Germany, and this is the first time ever, I see something like that!

    Despite of that, the only freight trains on TSW2 I saw with the DB101, are repaints ones from CC. No DB red one at all!

    It’s extremely rare. It used to be practice for the 101s to haul freight when the 101 needed to be moved to a different part of Germany to avoid losing money by moving the 101 as a light loco. Don’t think that’s done much anymore since the 101’s frames are way too fragile for repeatedly hauling freight.

    That`s have sense.
    The freight train was not so long, and the freight cars were all 2 axle ones.
    Most probably, they even be empty.
