Remarks & Notes 
The Ge 4/4 II # 611 "Landquart" of the Rhaetian Railway with 1700 kw and a maximum speed of 90 km/h was delivered on June 30, 1973 as the first of its series by SLM and BBC, was green with chrome lettering and had round lower lamps on the front. With the delivery of the second series of Ge 4/4 II from 1984/85, the locomotives of the first series also gradually received the new red livery. In 2004, locomotive # 611 was the first of the series to receive rectangular lower headlights with integrated tail lights. From 2007, it was the first of the series to wear an advertising livery for Login, which was changed several times but remained in place until 2024. Now, on the initiative of the "Green and Chrome" foundation, the locomotive was more or less restored to its original condition by the RhB workshop in Landquart and presented in Landquart on april 12th, 2024 on the turntable. The locomotive is still in daily use on the Rhaetian Railway's main network and is also equipped with dual brakes and the new ZSI-127 train protection system. The coat of arms of Landquart with an upright walking ibex (capricorn) with a torch is effectively the coat of arms of the municipality of Igis, which together with Mastrils is now part of the municipality of Landquart. # 611 pulls freight train 5151 from Landquart freight yard via Chur-Thusis-Filisur-Samedan to Pontresina as very first train in green paint scheme again, between Chur and Felsberg.
