I wish I lived in Austria, instead of Australia.

Such a beautiful country, and such sexy trains!

They work by spinning fast, which removes the water by centrifugal force. These kinds of windows are usually used on Ships so that they have a clear window during storm conditions...

These are nice pictures of some good looking railways, thanks.
Probably the only way I'll get to see different places.

The Südbahnhof is history. Now for real.

More pictures at derStandard - Die letzten Fotos vom Südbahnhof


Long live the Hauptbahnhof (soon enough)
Even though the station might hardly be breath taking architecture as such, I am looking forward to it for several reasons and the ensemble all together seems rather promising.



This and more pictures here:

Is that photo photoshopped/HDR or did you really manage to get such an awesome shot like that?

Anyway, the Railjet really looks great in this setting. Just one question, why is it a double traction with a 2nd train in the middle?

A little bit Tonemapping (just in the range of the clouds) otherwise the picture is unmodified.

To expand the capacity. The Train comes from Munich, so it's always fully loaded.

I had the feeling that the clouds looked a tad too good to be true, but I am cautious because sometimes they could really look that good all by themselves.

Of course, but I was only surprised that they need two locomotives for 14 carriages, but maybe thats totally normal and I just failed to realize it before. Or is it because they need more power due to higher possible speeds (at least on parts of the track)?

It's not necessary to have two locomotives for this route, but there are always one locomotive and seven coaches which are affiliated with each other, so it's not possible to have one RJ-Locomotive and 14 coaches.

Btw: 1116 179 + 1116 038 (Siemens) with ÖBB EC 563 "Handl Tyrol Speck" between Innsbruck and Rum [Date 01.08.2009].
