The "Nightjet" locomotive 1216 012 is the second Taurus locomotive existing in this design, along with the ÖBB 1116 195. A striking feature of the 1216 is the red stripe on both front ends, which is necessary for Italian registration.
With the timetable change in December 2016, the ÖBB launched the Europe-wide night train service under the brand name "Nightjet". Since December 2017, the name "Nightjet (NJ)" has also been used as a train category. The ÖBB provided the carriages with adhesive foils to give them a new design. The eye-catching design is in night blue with a subtle starry sky.
