Explore further ways to communicate your message on advertising locomotives and appeal to your target audience. Some ideas are provided below. We will be happy to advise you in person and recommend suitable measures.

Making of
Document the creation of your advertising locomotive with videos and photos that can also be used in your communication measures.

Launch ceremony
Organise a launch ceremony with employees, partners, customers and the media, and present your advertising locomotive for the first time on a platform or in an industrial setting.

Rollout and in motion
Offer exclusive insights and perspectives with videos and photos of the rollout and your advertising locomotive in motion throughout the year.

Cab rides
Offer rides in the cab as giveaways or competition prizes. Two people can ride in the cab of your locomotive for half a day, offering them an insight into a typical working day of a train driver and letting them experience the speed and technology up close.

Special rides
Hire one or more carriages for special occasions – the maiden voyage of the advertising locomotive with media representatives, or an employee or customer event. Rent a carriage or two as an interesting setting for a seminar or workshop, for example, and travel to a beautiful location at the same time.

Get people talking about your advertising locomotive with competitions. For example, you could ask your customers to guess how many kilometres the advertising locomotive has already covered (the figure is reported to you each month). Or ask your customers to post their selfies with your advertising locomotive on social media, and hold a special event to award prizes for the best ones.

Other possibilities
Combine your message on the advertising locomotive with RailPosters inside the carriages, or have mini advertising locomotives produced in H0 scale (1:87) to sell or give away. We will be happy to advise you and recommend specific measures to suit your needs.

Advertising train options
An advertising locomotive offers you too little space for your advertising message? We would be happy to advise you on the implementation of an entire advertising train.
