Here is a revival color that I like, and that is basically identical to the original livery, and on rolling stock directly descended from the original type that had it. Kintetsu Minami Osaka Line, 6000 series. Occasion was a special train promoting an animated film DVD release: This rolling stock with this livery was nicknamed the "Rabbit Car", not for being high speed, but rather having high acceleration in local services, to enable fast runs between stations on the Minami Osaka Line, threading paths between the express and semi-express services, which were in the hands of older (axle hung motors?) rolling stock. The original 6800 series that had this livery no longer run on Kintetsu Lines, but refurbished examples are used by the Yoro Railway. Here are a couple of photos I took of one in the revival colors at Ogaki:
