Well first of all it's no terminal station anymore so the capacity per track is already much higher. Second: What you see right now is only 50 % of the complete station. Once the whole station is finished it is going to provide 12 platform edges (the two busiest edges are going to be underground) and 2 separate through-tracks for freight trains and other operational trains.

Three: Additional infrastructure measures have been taken to avoid bottle necks for incoming trains like the "Überwerfung" Matzleinsdorfer Platz.

Still you are right, there are critics saying that there might be capacity problems in future as there won't be any buffer area around the station to add extra platforms. We will see.

Is there enough space to build a paltform near the two freight tracks?

I also find thast station quite small considering its location...

I was always wondering what the hell this would turn into. What exactly is the purpose of this structure though? How is it going to help capacity?

Next to the southern freight track should be enough space to add one more platform edge, yes, but the second one is in the middle of the station.

ICs and the Westbahn are going to stay at Westbahnhof so there'll be enough capacity for the long distance trains.

Trains don't have to cross all the tracks to get to the right platform resulting in higher capacities.

Yesterdays RJ 363 from Zurich to Vienna was the 1st regular passenger train, which used the new highspeed line between St. Pölten and Vienna.
As it had the regular departure from St Pölten after midnight, it was already diverted via the new line and hence arrived at Wien Westbahnhof 10 minutes early (despite a 5 minutes delay at St. Pölten):

The new timetable year is just 3 seconds old:


Highspeed on the new line (the top speed was ~230 km/h):



Today I made another rail-related roundtrip with 2 more rides on the new line...

At Kleinreifling:




Train to "Soundtest":




Train ride Kleinreifling - Amstetten:








Optimized 00-hub Amstetten with new connections between local and IC trains:


Once again highspeed between St Pölten and Vienna:








In Vienna I headed to the new main station, which also opened today:




"Habemus Hauptbahnhof"


At Wien Hauptbahnhof:








Extended tram route D:























The train from Nice-Ville to Moscow passes through Wien Hbf:

At http://www.bahnforum.info/smf/index....591#msg1432591 some interesting pics of the current construction state of the Koralmtunnel can be found.

Two samples:





The 1st tunnel drilling machine is currently being assembled and it's planned that it will start working already in december.

Can the high speed trains drive yet 230 km/h on the new Westbahn Track?
Why the train from Nice-Ville to Moscow is not in the schedule of the ÖBB and where I can book this train??

Yes, 230 km/h is possible on three sectors of the Westbahn so far: Vienna - St. Pölten, St. Valentin - Linz Kleinmünchen and Lambach - Breitenschützing. Ybbs - Amstetten will follow in 2015. Further 220 km/h is allowed in Tyrol between Kundl and Baumkirchen.
