AUSTRIA | Railways

Here's a thread about ÖBB (Österreichische Bundesbahnen) / Austrian Federal Railways. I found some nice pictures on Flickr that might be interesting for you. Hopefully someone will be able to contribute more!

Maybe the speed will be increased in Hungary as well when the track system is adapted.

Money. The track itself maybe good for it,but the security systems are not,most of our trains dont have ETCS. I know the track can endure it,the new 3rd generation IC's were tested on them at 180. But back to Austria. When will the service be extended to München?

It is "just" a modified Taurus. Its technical parameters are very interesting. The hungarian driver said it can stop in 600m from 160km/h!(I dont know if he only talked about the locomotive,or the entire consist). And it can accelarate to 250 in 82s!
