Remarks & Notes 
Empty sugar beet train 41690 from Islikon via Winterthur-Kloten-Regensdorf-Bözberg-Basel to Wismar/Germany, between Winterthur and Winterthur Tössmühle. Re 482 # 047 of the International Rolling Stock Investment Gmbh (IRSI) in a special "Jim Knopf" paint scheme (adhesives) is pulling the about 450 meter long train of TR TransRail (in Switzerland) and IGE (Internationale Gesellschaft für Eisenbahnverkehr IGE Gmbh & Co. KG) in Germany. The IRSI bought this Bombardier TRAXX F140 AC2 (built in 2006 for SBB Cargo) from SBB Cargo on february first, 2020. In summer of this year, the locomotive got a revision R2 in the SBB work of Bellinzona and a new paint scheme in a dark red, similar to them of the Deutsche Bundesbahn for diesellocomotives in the 1960'. In the meantime, there were placed large advertising films on the side with a "Jim Knopf" theme (fairy tale of "Jim Knopf und Lukas der Lokomotivführer" from german writer Micheal Ende in 1960) with the inscription: "Wir sind zwar nicht Jim Knopf, aber von den Alpen bis zum Meer sind wir die Profis im Eisenbahnverkehr"/"We may not be Jim Knopf, but from the Alps to the sea we are the professionals in rail transport". Also stickers of the TR Transrail and the IGE were applied. Most of the cars are former SBB also, of type Eaos running now for Axbenet in Trnava/Slovakia.
