The MÁV M41,2103 has been repainted to its factory red livery in 2019. Only the first few locomotives had this paintjob with the communist star stylyzed in silver outline inside a circle between the windshields. Later locomotives until number 2125 came in the same crimson livery with additional silver stripes on the sides and a large MÁV emblem, a colour that 2103 also received. All other locomotives were originally produced with the now-standard MÁV livery with a slightly more orange colour that locomotives below 2125 also gradually received. This retro locomotive was the star of the Retro Weekend of 2020 together with the three new, retro-Bhv cars in the deep, old MÁV-green. The locomotive features a new side and front road number plaque but lacks the red star. It is also inaccurate in that originally this locomotive was produced with the 45-degree spring-kind bogies, not the vertical-spring version, this error is going to be corrected later (bogies are liberally exchanged under class M41 locomotives in everyday usage). The original locomotive also did not have a mirror, but now it is necessary, so it will remain.
