[AT] Werbelok alert: 1116 153 debuts a new look with another ÖAMTC livery

Ah, the Taurus ‘werbeloks’ of ÖBB – a colorful family of locomotive advertising from Austria. Best of all, they keep changing. As usual, Railcolor has you covered with the latest updates: Today we focus on 1116 153, debuting a new look for a now traditional customer: ÖAMTC.

We thank Dominik Pauli for sharing his nic picture with the magazine.

ÖBB’s 1116 153 has been recently upgraded with a new, modern version of the ÖAMTC branding, promoting the slogan “Always there for you, no matter what you are traveling with”. The locomotive was seen at Vienna Westbahnhof on 10.11.2020:

When it comes to werbeloks, the Austrian Automobile, Motorcycle, and Touring Club (ÖAMTC) and ÖBB have been longtime partners. Back in 2013 not one but two Taurus locomotives from both generations (U2 and U4) got a special livery design, promoting the non-profit organization:
