The Federal Austrian Railways (OBB) offers locomotive branding for companies and organisations. A fun example is this loco branded with the colours of the Austrian police (Polizei).
Clever! An International Museum of Buttons (Knopf & Knopf Museum) advertises on this manhole cover. Together with a brasserie and a hotel, it fills a former railway station building in Warthausen. The building is located directly on the Öchsle Railway, a heritage railway from Warthausen to Ochsenhausen. [German]
Locomotives of the Austrian Federal Railways (OBB) offer advertising space for companies and organisations. This locomotive seen in Leoben promotes EKO Cobra, Austria’s primary counter-terrorism unit. Mind the friendly snake in the front part of the loco!

On my walk through Friesach I came across this fun shop sign at the storefront of a shoe shop. It shows a ‘Trojan Boot’ (Der trojanische Stiefel)
