Broad gauge is back on the table. The conservatives are proposing for the Vienna - Kosice extension to be built: http://derstandart.at/2000018779438/...ach-Wien-holen

It is the construction site for the St. Pölten freight train bypass (blue line), which will be operational by 2017:

Why would they use Broad Gauge when most of Europe uses Standard?

Because there's a Broad gauge line at the other end of the proposed route which is connected to the rest of the broad gauge network.

Especially the "Supercargolokomotiven Ost/West" are going to be interesting as 6 axles locos are very rare in Austria these days.

Additionally the Austrian government agreed on a 14.6 billion Euro railway infrastructure package for the period until 2021. Focus will be on the Southern Railway, Brenner Base Tunnel, Marchegger Eastern Railway and closing the last gap of the 4 tracks expansion between Vienna and Wels.

This video of mine was filmed in Vienna back in July, but I've only now got around to uploading it.

The new Hauptbahnhof. Awesome station, very nice and clean architecture. This is a little walking tour of the platforms and the station building itself.

Wien Hauptbahnhof enters full service as of today!

From now on all trains except regional trains and those of the private company "Westbahn" from the Western rail corridor are heading for Wien Hbf via Wien Meidling. Hence finally, after more than 150 years of railway history in Austria, Vienna finally has a true main station, connecting trains from all directions with optimized transfer options.

Why doesn't Westbahn go to Hbf as well?

Because Westbahn believes it can create an USP by being the only one to offer fast long(er) distance services to Westbahnhof. In other words they would cater for a specific group of people who are heading to the north-west of Vienna.

We will see if this is going to work out or if Westbahn is going to follow the ÖBB soon because it figured out it can not afford the complete lack of connectivity to all the other long distance relations.

I guess, besides the reason mentioned above, Westbahn would actually not be used that much by customers that would profit from the great train interchange options offered now at Hauptbahnhof: Westbahn does not offer services on any other lines, so anyone going from e.g. Salzburg to Budapest would need to buy two different tickets (one for Westbahn, one for ÖBB), and thus might outright take an ÖBB train for the whole trip anyway.

Therefore, positioning themselves for those travelling to/from places close to a U4, U3 or northern branch of U6 (not necessarily only north-west of Vienna), might be a viable strategy, if going to Hauptbahnhof would be a detour or require more changing in the urban transportation network for those customers.
We'll see if that works out :-)

It's a strategy followed by other private operators. For example, NTV (Italian HS operator) began its services using different stations in main cities.
After a few years it seems they are abandoning this model and reverting to the traditional hubs, even though they were able to gather a certain interest in the alternative stations.
It must be said that the public was not used to use those stations for long distance trains, and this limited their success.

I believe Westbahn will have better fortune with this strategy, because the Westbahnhof is a well known hub for Wieners and for users of that line.
Hauptbahnhof is connected with other rail services and S-Bahn, but the Westbhf. appears to be better connected to the city and this is an advantage in regional travels.

Nearly all regional trains radiating from Milan go to Porta Garibaldi instead of Centrale. I think this was a more interesting station than Centrale for NTV, which now goeas to Centrale.

This reminds me Westbahn, which as I read has ordered new trains to serve also the Hbf.

I agree with your view, but you know the public tends to be scared by changes...

Wasn't it the case with NTV that they were refused paths into the main stations because there was no capacity (according to RFI)?

I also expect the network fees to be higher for the new Hauptbahnhof, which is another reason why Westbahn stayed at the Westbahnhof.

User Nachalnik did a comprehensive picture documentary about the latest changes to the timetable:
