The locomotive leasing company MRCE usually paint their locos black.

I collected some of my photos of such locomotives.

Here is a TRAXX 1 loco - no logo of the company that uses this locomotive:

A TRAXX 2 loco used by Crossrail (Märklin made two models of 185 564 in this livery - one with metal body, one with plastic body, the latter only as a two-rail model):

Another TRAXX 2, hired by Rail4Chem:

Not an MRCE loco, this 101 is a DB advertising loco (Roco made a model):

Another TRAXX 1 loco without logo, about to haul a freight train through Cologne central station (usually freight trains take another route):

Class 189 MRCE loco, hired by City Night Line:

189 with logo "ERS Railways":

Not yet black - this loco still has the original DispoLok livery in yellow/silver - MRCE bought DispoLok:

Another black MRCE loco, hauling a passenger train from Cologne to Hamburg (HKX or Hamburg Cologne Express):

Roco made a model of a loco with the SBB livery and the review can be found here:

And to revive this excellent photo gallery provided by Tom in 2015, I have to present an MRCE Siemens Dispolok BR182 009 on a freight train heading toward Heidelberg.

The photo was taken early December 2018 at Eberbach on the Neckar River, not far south-east from Heidelberg.

I purchased a model black loco in the form of an MRCE Siemens BR 189, Maerklin model #39865. I believe it ran in these colours around 2016.

There was also one of the locomotives used by RailCare in Switzerland which was painted black. It was originally a Traxx 186, but after a lease swap with BLS, it was one of the Re 465.
The latest one that I know of is one of the BLS MUTZ trainsets, which was painted black in a special livery for Bern's soccer team. A model is due from Liliput in the near future.

The original RailCare 186 "Flash Fire" with Black Side Panels:

Here are a couple of images taken in September 2019 by Alan Clark.
Alan is one of the contributors to the (Tapatalk) Railways of Germany forum at this link:

This forum includes interesting discussions on models for Germany, generally HO and N gauge.

I didn't see any black locos when in Germany recently, but I did see a gold one - BR101 071-9 seen at Stuttgart Hbf in September 2019.
