Your face on the side of a Swiss train?

At present, Rhaetian trains are gathering pictures from their Facebook fans to decorate the side of one of their locomotives.

My face is one of those chosen

If you take a train journey in Graubunden in the near future you may well spot the train.

There is still time to be added to the pictures if you wish.

Re: Your face on the side of a Swiss train?

Do you have your best side on the side or the other side on the other side?

My mug will be on the same train, I've been chosen.



See you on the way to Graubünden

I expect his face book side on the facing side and his back side will be on the other side.

Hopefully my best side. I'm certainly not exposing my backside on a train

They couldn't really reject mine. I had one of their trains outside Chur station in the background

Not something I'd be up for but glad you all are excited. Now, tell me which picture you each are!

Re: Your face on the side of a Swiss train?

A few people tried putting their faces on the fronts of a couple of trains in Bern a few weeks ago.

I will, if and when it's done, and provided I can find it myself, among the thousands.

I won't mind, since I'm going to be famous, anyway

Good point!

I should have thought of it earlier

Now it's too late. From Graubünden to Hollywood in one easy step.
