That was the ill-fated four-system class 184 (capable of running under the Belgian and Dutch DC systems), but they had exact-same-looking two-system sister prototypes (class 181.0/181.1), from which the 181.2 was derived. Check some German multi-system loco photos on this Dutch page, much more of the older classes at this German page. From the latter, here is a meeting of generations in Saarbrücken:

(From left to right: series loco 181 208, prototype 181 002 [note the differing side cooler grates - the trademark of the 181.2], and predecessor 182 011 [which was derived from the standard class 110/140])
