On 18 September 2013 at Brno hl. n. the first of the seven ÖBB Class 1216 electrics destined to haul ČD railjets was presented to the general public. The locomotive, 1216 235, wears a style of the ČD livery which will match that of the Viaggio Comfort rolling stock. ČD, ÖBB and Siemens representatives baptised it "Spirit of Brno". The last photo in this sequence shows it together with 1216 229, "Spirit of Prague", which is heading train EC 75 "Franz Schubert" from Praha to Wiener Neustadt.
