The ÖBB class 1020 was the local designation of the German E94 class, a Co-Co type. After WW2, 44 of them were on Austrian territory and in 1952-1954 the ÖBB created a further 3 from parts for unfinished examples.
From 1967 to 1980, except for the latter 3, they were modernized and received, among other things, two rubber-fixed front windows (originally there were three narrow ones), permanent headlamp tail lamps on the end-bodies and jet fan grilles in them.
From 1970 they were also repainted in orange instead of fir green. In 1995, the last locomotives of this series were retired.
This one has a class 1110 behind it.

Being nominated for the Oscar for Best Animated Film, we went to see Loving Vincent, which is a fully hand-painted look at the end of his life, using his art styles and based on several of his actual paintings, including this one. Worth seeing for the original approach.
