The Deutsche Bundesbahn enthusiastically announced its future top offer in 1962: "A big name in the European railway sector is given a new lease of life. From May 27, 1962, the beginning of this year's summer timetable, a brand new "Rhinegold" of the DB will operate between Amsterdam and Basel. This train will continue the tradition of that famous ancestor, who in the twenties and thirties belonged to the most elegant of what the railways in Europe had to offer. "The new Rheingold was made entirely of newly built wagons. As a train locomotives were initially modified machines of the E 10 series (then referred to as E 10.12), whose transmission had been modified for a top speed of 160 km / h. In addition, DB procured four new types of cars for its prestige train. In addition to the known by normal express trains compartment van with side passage (type Av4üm -62), there was now for the first time large-capacity car (type Ap4üm -62) in long-distance traffic. A special feature were the observation car (type AD4üm -62), in whose elevated, fully glazed observation cockpit passengers enjoyed a clear view of the beautiful landscape. Here and in the large-capacity car, the seats could be rotated, so that the travelers could always drive with a view in the direction of travel. With drinks and snacks, the bar of the lookout car invited to linger. Business travelers could have their work done in the writing room. The new dining cars (type WR4üm-62) had a double-storey business wing, which soon earned them the name "humpbackseat car". Two storey, therefore, to accommodate more seats in the dining room. For pleasant temperatures caused in the car, the gold vaporized windows and of course an air conditioning. The locomotives and wagons were easily recognizable from the outside by the elegant, two-tone paint with cobalt-blue balustrade and beige window band. In addition, the lettering "Rheingold" was under the lookout pulpit. As of May 1965, the "Rheingold" operated as a Trans-Europ-Express (TEE). Since the TEE trains had a two-tone paint with a red balustrade, locomotives and wagons were repainted accordingly. The use of the observation car and the two-story dining car ended in May 1976. The summer timetable 1979 saw the end of the traditional Rhine gold between Hoek van Holland and Switzerland, He only drove between Amsterdam and Geneva. From May 23, 1982, the train run was limited to the Amsterdam - Basel SBB. Until May 30, 1987, the Rheingold still wound every day through the track tangle of the Ruhr, past the Cologne Cathedral and the Loreley rock and crossed the Upper Rhine valley between the Black Forest and Vosges.
