In 1932 the Deutsche Reichsbahn Gesellschaft introduced the so-called “Ruhr Schnellverkehr”, a forerunner of the later S-Bahn. The train formation took place due to the required fast passenger change with Prussian compartment cars of the types BC4 and C4. The color scheme wine red / cream was the standard color scheme in the Ruhr express traffic in the 1930s. The window areas of the second class were painted light blue for better recognition. The Reichsbahn had noticed that the initially used colors purple and cream were actually reserved for upscale long-distance transport. The series 38.10–40 (Prussian P 8) and 78 (pr. T 18) were used as locomotives. The machines specially intended for the Ruhr Schnellverkehr were given a sign above the smoke chamber that read "Ruhr Schnellverkehr".
