As a railroad enthusiast, even as one with a special fondness for the trains and territory of the Rhaetian Railway in Switzerland’s Canton Graubünden, I doubt my stock of adjectives for describing locomotives would ever have included words like succulent or mouth-watering…

Until last October in Chur, that is ;-)

There, in the Hauptbahnhof of Graubünden’s capital, I saw for the first time this Ge 4/4 Series III
locomotive wearing a Werbelok (advertising locomotive) livery for Co-Op markets.


She’ll look even more “appetizing” when she backs up and couples on to her consist of bright red Rhätische Bahn carriages for her trip to St. Moritz.

Another "Werbelok"
