I'm not sure I love it, it's very nice but the choice of colors is a bit depressing, why so much grey?

I think the same. I like minimal and squared architecture, but here's there really too much grey, especially in the hall.

It would be nice to add a touch of light colored wood, would be classy and look in line with the style of the country.

I'd say the second pic is just Hauptbahnhof and the third one is the "ambivalent" station of Tullnerfeld?

Nice pictures thank you guys very much! I used the Sbahn to get home to my folks today, I would have loved to take a look at Hbf but I was really hungover and needed to get to family lunch

He was talking about the third picture though, which is obviously the commuter station of Tullnerfeld.

Salzburg main station reconstruction completed
Monday, November 10, 2014



A SIX-YEAR project by Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) to reconstruct Salzburg main station was officially completed on November 7 at a cost of €250m

The scheme was complicated due to the need to minimise disruption to train operations and because certain parts of the old building had to be retained as they are classified as a national monument. This included the huge iron roof across the platforms which was dismantled, refurbished and erected again.

Platforms had to be rebuilt step by step. This included converting some dead-end platforms into through ones so that the station now has nine through platforms instead of five previously. The terminal platforms had offices in between from the time when border control between Germany and Austria took place. These offices have now been removed.

Salzburg main station handles 25,000 passengers and 500 trains per day.

Siemens unveils ÖBB’s Desiro cityjet
11 Nov 2014





AUSTRIA: The first of 101 three-car Desiro EMUs which Siemens is building for ÖBB was unveiled at the company’s Uerdingen plant on November 10, in a ceremony attended by Federal Minister of Infrastructure Alois Stöger, ÖBB Chief Executive Christan Kern and Siemens Mobility CEO Jochen Eickholt, along with the provincial governors from Niederösterreich, Oberösterreich and Steiermark.

Branded as cityjet by ÖBB, the €550m order comprises 31 trains for the Wien S-Bahn network, 35 to operate regional services in Niederösterreich, 18 for Steiermark and 17 for Oberösterreich.

Following commissioning and trial running at Wildenrath, which is due to start immediately, the first EMU will undergo climate testing in Wien. The first five units are expected to enter service from the end of 2015, with deliveries to be completed in 2018

Don't know if they do all the maintenance, but they certainly do a lot. For that purpose ÖBB has its own maintenance company called Technische Services.

For repairing track and rejuvenating the trackbed they hire the company swietelsky. Although I am not sure if they only rent their machines or their crews also.

Last week I was at Hauptbahnhof for the first time, I have to say it's really nice. Certainly not an architectural marvel but it's just elegant enough and certainly gets the job done. What I found particulary beautiful were the escalator rises to the platforms. The walls are all black and with the light from the escalators it looks downright eerie from the hall downstairs, like you are entering some other dimension. It gave me goosebumps. Normal people could probably never understand such a thing

Austria taken to court over lack of financial transparency in rail sector
27 NOV, 2014



The European Commission (EC) is to take Austria to the Court of Justice over an apparent lack of financial transparency in the country’s rail sector.

In a statement, the EC said that Austria wasn’t working hard enough to ensure that subsidies paid for passenger transport services were being properly recorded in relevant accounts.

The EC said: “It cannot be excluded that public funds are used to cross subsidise other transport services. This could distort competition, potentially giving an unfair competitive advantage to those receiving the public subsidies.”
