Exclusively by 1016 and 1116? Very unlikely, since Südbahn was always a bastion for 1044/1144 type locos and still is, whereas Tauri were mainly used on Westbahn due to the higher Vmax. Could be that some of the 1116s have been pulled away for RJ-Services though.

Can someone explain to me why that is?
Its due to the fact that the 1x44 are not equipped with ETCS, which is necessary to run trains on the new line Wien - St. Pölten (opened in dec 2012).
So freight trains which use the new line, can no longer be hauled by 1x44.

The ÖBB presented the design of the 100 Desiro ML it has ordered and I like it. They are going to replace the 4020 on S-Bahn and regional train lines.

Yet again a cold interior design.

Partly true. I wouldn't call red a very cold colour and there is quite a fair dose of it present in the interior. I also like the fact that they introduced limited amounts of wood style surfaces. But you are right that the dominating colours seem to be white, grey and anthracite.

Nice train. But I find it a bit odd that the sets appear to have only one door per carriage. That is strange for a train that is intended for local services.

100 EMUs, 3 carriages per EMU (replacing the old 4020s), € 5,5m per unit.

Has to be a mistake in the rendering. There is no such thing as a Desiro ML with just one door per carriage.

Very good price for similar product in australia we are paying 7.5 million euro per three car unit, difference is alot when you order 100 trains.

It really is an excellent price and Siemens is not too thrilled about the deal either. Probably the best sign that you got yourself a great deal.

ÖBB Technical Services will be partly responsible for the assembly of the trains, so that's probably why ÖBB got a good deal with Siemens.

I am really impressed by the pictures, and am curious to see the trains when they've been produced. I don't mind an interior where white and grey are prevalent, there's plenty of red and wood to balance it.

Good to see they will spread the assembly around the country

I hate Desiro/Flirt/Talent interiors for the most part: the plastic, thin seatsm the wide-spaces that lack any compartimentation and let the cold in. It really is basically a tram, not a proper train.

Nothing wrong for an S-Bahn. For a regional train more compartimentalization might be nice though. I heard that these visuals are for the S-Bahn version and I am not sure how the regional train version is going to look like. They are going to replace 4020er however which don't feature much compartimentalization either.

ÖBB trials level crossing safety cameras

AUSTRIAN Federal Railways (ÖBB) has installed automatic red light cameras at four level crossings as part of a pilot project which seeks to deter motorists from ignoring crossing signals.

ÖBB says that it has spent around €25m on safety improvements and public awareness campaigns in recent years, and while these measures have been successful the number of casualties remains high. Last year there were 88 collisions at level crossings in Austria, killing 14 people and injuring 45.

The cameras are currently being trialled at four locations in the provinces of Lower Austria, Salzburg, Burgenland, and Carinthia and ÖBB plans to extend the pilot to more level crossings. ÖBB does not have access to the images from the cameras, which record the license plate of the offender, and the data passes automatically to the police for processing.

How is widening of the railway between Graz and the Slovenian border to two tracks progressing? Are there any pictures?
