[CZ] New Werbelok: RegioJet 193 227 becomes a movie star

The great thing about advertisement locomotives (a.k.a. ‘Werbeloks’ in German) is that they can promote virtually anything. From hockey championships to famous composers, they are all eye-catching and unique in their own way. Now we have a new rising ‘film star’ from the fleet of RegioJet.

Vectron 193 227 is promoting the Czech comedy production titled ‘3Bobule’ which is due to premiere in cinemas in March 2020. As the name hints it, this is the third part of the film and the producers have surely found an original way of telling their audience about the upcoming release.

We thank Katka Vlasáková‎ for sharing her impression of the RegioJet Werbelok, as seen on 22.08.2019, driving the operator’s RJ 1012 from Košice (SK) to Praha hl.n.:
