ÖBB 1016/1116: Promotional and commercial liveries  
With the introduction of the 1x16 series, the OBB got 332 new machines that, having large flat and smooth body sides, are very fit for mobile advertising. A phenomenon not very new, as the Swiss and German railways already use their machines for commercial and promotional purposes for many years, but gaining interest in an ever more commercialized society. Next to that, printing technology and adhesive materials do improve very fast, making more sophisticated graphics possible every year. Before 2007, the OBB used Taurus machines predominantly to support non-commercial events, anniversaries and for charity. With the presentation of 1016 047 'Wiener Stadtische' for the first time a commercial company was given the opportunity to design it own locomotive livery. For that a considerable prize has to be paid.

Next to promotional liveries, also the OBB repaints machines if they serve a separate purposes or represent special products. These machines are also included in this sub section. Examples are the two machines used to haul the City Airport Express around Vienna and the locomotives that will haul the RailJet premium trains.
