WL = coach with beds (wagon lit)
A = first class
B = second class
m = ???

BDZ = Bulgarian Railways

Am I correct?

The “m” means that the carriage is longer than 25 meters.

Brenner Base Tunnel boring to start this year

http://www.railwaygazette.com/nc/new...this-year.html

Quote:
05 February 2011

AUSTRIA: Excavation of the main bores of the Brenner Base Tunnel is set to start this year, after the government gave the formal go-ahead as part of the 2011-16 railway investment framework approved on February 1.

Work on the 55 km twin-bore tunnel will be launched from Innsbruck in the north and Fortezza in the south, with excavation of the central section between Ahrental and Trens planned to start in 2016. Work on exploratory tunnels is already underway.

Austria will spend €1·3bn by 2016. The base tunnel is the centrepiece of TEN-T Priority Project 1, the Berlin - Palermo corridor, and the EU will provide €1bn by the end of 2013. This is the largest investment of all 30 EU Priority Projects. European Co-ordinator Pat Cox said the decision to go ahead 'reflects the progress that has been made on both sides, by Austria and Italy, in recent months on this important TEN-T priority project.'

European Commission Vice-President Siim Kallas said the base tunnel will make 'a crucial contribution to the modal shift from road to rail and to the protection of the sensitive Alpine environment'.

Thank you for your pictures!

@imaginas: Mariazellerbahn is under new management. Austria Federal Railways (ÖBB) sold them to the province of Lower Austria. Now the line is operated by NÖVOG. They plan to acquire new Stadler trains.

@snowman159: Semmeringbahn is truly impressive. Too bad I never had the chance to use it so far.

Actually that's a historic livery - except for the "Ötscherbär" logo.

So they're going to keep it with the new operator and the new Stadler trains? I didn't mean any offense! It's obviously just a matter of tastes

I sure hope they do, because NÖVOG has some truly horrible liveries:


No, this is not the work of vandals - this IS the ACTUAL livery...


sooooo ugly (Bahnforum.info)

this is how this exact loco looked a few months ago:
(Bahnforum.info)

another fugly NÖVOG livery:

(DSO)

this is how that railcar looked just a few months ago:

(bahnbilder.warumdenn.net)

Compared to that, brown is not too bad.

Brown liveries on modern transport are interesting and unusual, but that's just me.

Well these Rh 1099 locos are 100 years old (probably one of the oldest electro locomotives that are still used for everyday operations). So not exactly very modern

Currently the most modern trains used on Mariazellerbahn are Rh 4090 EMUs
(DSO)


(WP)

New Stadler EMUs are already ordered. They will look like this:

http://www.rabenstein.gv.at/


Crazy new trainstation that they plan to build for this small railways (zieserarchitekt)

It wouldn't be a real NÖVOG train, if the livery wasn't really horrible (gold) and if they wouldn't choose a moronic name: "Himmelstreppe". Literally "Stairway to Heaven". Who names a train like that?
