Remarks & Notes 
The Ge 4/4 II # 616 "Filisur" got a new publicity paint scheme (adhesives) and was introduced on november 9th at Landquart. Today she pulled the Regio Express 1745 from (Scuol-Tarasp-) Landquart via Chur to Disentis, between Chur and Felsberg. The "donation locomotive" advertises for the collection of money for the renovation of the 2-6-0 steam locomotive G 3/4 # 1 "RHAETIA", which has been shut down since 2014 due to damage to the boiler. The locomotive Rhätia was built in 1889 by the SLM Winterthur for the Landquart-Davos Railway and also pulled the opening train. A donation barometer is mounted on this locomotive, where after each collection of 50000 francs another "Briquet" is glued on and thus the status of the collection is displayed. The slogan on the locomotive says: Our number 1 needs coal.
