PS: Slovenian Railways is SŽ, JŽ was Yugoslav Railways

In Carinthia,

1) only the route Hermagor - Kötschach-Mauthen is still closed.











In this area a rail replacement bus service is established.



The route is closed until further notice. Due to cleanup works ...






2) the railway operation to / from Slovenia (Villach Hbf - Rosenbach - Jesenice (SL)) has been resumed on Tuesday, 11 February, 2:30 p.m. No further restrictions.

Salzburg Central Station

For a long time, Salzburg Hauptbahnhof (Salzburg Hbf) has been a border station at the Austrian border with Germany. It serves both the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) and the Deutsche Bahn AG (DB). It also forms a junction between several ÖBB local and long-distance transport routes.

At Salzburg Hauptbahnhof, the Western Railway (Vienna-Salzburg) links with the Salzburg-Rosenheim(-Munich/Kufstein) railway, on which, along with international trains, so-called ÖBB corridor services make express connections with the Tyrol and the Vorarlberg, via the German Corner at Rosenheim.

Another main line, the Salzburg-Tyrol railway, heads from Salzburg Hauptbahnhof in a southerly direction via Bischofshofen and Zell am See to Wörgl Hauptbahnhof. In Bischofshofen (1) and in Schwarzach-St. Veit (2), yet another two main lines, the (1) Ennstal Railway und the (2) Tauern Railway, branche off from this line.

Salzburg Hauptbahnhof is also important as a departure point for regional services on the Salzburger Lokalbahn, and as a key hub of the Salzburg S-Bahn and for many regional buses serving Greater Salzburg. Also located at the station is one of the key hubs in the StadtBus (Albus) Salzburg trolleybus system and city bus network.

In southwestern parts of Austria (Carinthia, Tyrol) some of the worst snow conditions for 15 years occurred last weekend.

In the southeastern districts of Styria the snow wasn't such heavy. Last weekend, at several times frozen rain has coated the snow and the branches of the trees with a thick layer of ice.

Apparently, I can't find it either on fahrplan.oebb.at (which is based on hafas, isn't it?). Anyway, if it is not there, it is not offered.

Is there any construction on upgrading tracks to CZ and SK to 160 km/h or above?

UPDATE 14 FEB 2014 - Resumption of the train service Hermagor - Kötschach-Mauthen

Friday, 15 February 2014

All railway lines in Carinthia and East Tyrol are passable, all train services are back in operation. According to ÖBB [Austrian Federal Railways] the resumption of the train service took place Friday afternoon.

The railway line between Hermagor and Kötschach Mauthen in the Gail Valley had been impassable two weeks and was reopened Friday afternoon. The regular operation of the Gail Valley Railway was resumed at Saturday morning.

Until mid of last week by ÖBB staff more than 30,000 hours of work were necessary to relieve the route of the enormous masses of snow. In addition, there were still numerous external helpers, who also lent a hand to support an efficient snow removal.

Right now, no, nothing of relevance going on.

It is planned though to increase Vienna - Bratislava up to 160 km/h by 2030. This is basically the most ridiculous thing ever, since the track we're talking about runs completely straight for 32,5 km, has not hills whatsoever and connects two capitals with combined 2,5m inhabitants. I don't even remotely understand our governments reluctance to upgrade this track faster. Iron Curtain came down 23 years ago...

Sounds like politicians still have Cold War mentality regarding borders.

Not everywhere, just compare how many passenger trains there are now between Italy and Slovenia and how many there were in the past.

(answer: 0, except the two ending nearly nowhere at Villa Opicina)

Also between Austria and Italy via Villach-Tarvisio: just one EC and two regional trains a day, plus maybe a night train.

Well, Italy and international rail service is a horror story anyway. Trenitalia does what they can to avoid getting it... Especially in the Venice - Graz - Vienna corridor.

Not really. Connection to Hungary is pretty decent, but for some reason SK and CZ is of no importance to the government.

Connection to the Czech Republic is hardly getting a lot more attention. But the connection to Bratislava is indeed the biggest joke of it all. And the endless story of its upgrade is not a joke anymore but an entirely new dimension of failure. I mean, if a big tunnel is 20 years delayed, ok. That is an expensive and complicated project but a damn straight track that simply needs an upgrade two electfied double track of about 40 km? How difficult could that be? Apparently nearly impossible.
