The Norwegian El16 is based on the Swedish Rc4. For many years they ran the Express-trains from Oslo to Bergen and Trondheim. The first 10 (of the 17 built) came in the brown NSB colours (nowadays called "gammel design"). NSB Gods, later CargoNet, gave them a grey/black colour scheme.

This page shows the El16 models in my collection (all made by Roco).
