Remarks & Notes 
The "chameleon crocodile" Ge 6/6 I # 415 of the Rhaetian Railway is entering Davos Wiesen with the nostalgia train Zügenschlucht 7815 from Davos Platz to Filisur., which runs twice a day in summer, with open observation cars as well as beautiful historic passenger cars. "Rhaetian Crocodile" or "C-C" Ge 6/6 I # 415 (built in 1929) had to be completely rewired after a cable fire. It was also rust repaired and repainted in the original brown. A special paint was sprayed over it, which will be removed after about a year (solvent-based liquid rubber in pearl / metallic effect, also called Chameleon or Flip Flop paint). The action was apparently initiated and paid for by two well-known model train manufacturers. About Chameleon sprayed paint: When moving around, chameleon paint will change colour. The light reflection on chameleon spray paint gives the multi-coloured changing special effect. In the foreground the 84 meter high road bridge to the hamlet of Jenisberg high on the valley slope. The stone arch bridge over the Landwasser river with a span of 24 meter was renovated and widenend about 1/2 meter in 2020, it has been built in 1908.
