Well partly, the engineering, most parts and sales are done by Siemens. The assembling happens in Linz, at an ÖBB subsidiary (Technische Services). the plant itself is called "Taurus Center Linz" http://www.ts.oebb.at/de/Produkte_un...ling/index.jsp

Absolutely. You can hear the engine driver's pride when he says "120".

I've just finished writing the next part of the travelogue. It's about the "International Friendship Exhibition", the "Arirang" performance and so on.

Please check http://vienna-pyongyang.blogspot.com...-and-more.html




I hope you like it, alltough it's not really rail-related.

I like that you managed to keep the images. You did a very good job.

The trams in north korea seems to be very clean? i mean, they are old but very clean..




Seems that someone is really taking care of the trams.


World should do something about this. I hope that things will be brighter etc for everyone. I wish that these pictures got much more publicity.

Very good job! Kudos to you!

This video is a must-see! The world locomotive highspeed record (357 km/h) by an ÖBB Taurus 1216. It was done in Germany because unfortunately there is no place in Austria which allows speeds like that:

and here a preparation run with 330 km/h
