Jeah, in the most cities with a trolleybus network they want to remove them, why ever...
But we people in Salzburg really love our trolleybuses, so we expand our network year for year and it becomes bigger and bigger and the buses becomes moderner and they become still more comfortable.
Another reason for keeping our trolleybuses is, that they're just more moveable in the very narrow streets of Salzburg.

The trolleybuses run every 10 minutes and the S-Bahn every 30 minutes (from 2014 (if the new main station is completed) the S-Bahn will drive every 15 minutes).

Here a few renderings about the new main station in Salzburg (U/C since 2009):

Can the Salzburger Lokalbahn be considered as light rail?

Yes, I think so.
There are plans for an underground extension through the city since 1990, here some renderings from 1990:







one station is planned directly nine meters under the Salzach river:



pics are from here: http://www.bahn.co.at/agre/de/rsb_im_zr.html (very interesting, but only in german...)

The city really needs this light rail, because of the overloaded streets, but it will be built earliest in 2020 (Austrian politics, you know: very slowly...) and it would cost about 345mio.€ (457million USD).

Salzburg is the Mecca of all trolley-bus fans. I really want to see that tunnel under the Salzburg airport.

I agree, I absolutely loved riding trolleybuses when I was there. Very lovely city with great transportation.

Two of the greatest attractions in Salzburg are the trolley-bus network and Mozart's birth place. I am just wondering when did Salzburg's trolley routes get renumbered? I remember seeing trolley buses displaying route numbers such as 29, 49, 51, 77, but now they all seen to have changed.

By law it is heavy rail. In Austria (as well as Germany) we only have two distinctions: railways (Eisenbahn) and tramways (Straßenbahn). These are two different sets of rules and laws.

However within railways, there are two categories: main railways and local railways. The latter can use slightly simpler modes of operation.

Long story short: We do have some trains and lines in Austria that would fall under the category of lightrail, but are legally railways, even though some of them even share tracks with tramways, e.g. WLB (Wiener Lokalbahn) and STB (Stubaitalbahn), which are railways but share tracks with Vienna's and Innsbruck's tramways respectively. SLB is also lightrail, but legally spoken a railway.

Vienna's metro for instance is closer to standard heavy rail in terms of profile, but from the legal POV it's a tramway.

I've never been there but from what I've read the airport was extended in the end of the 1950s and in order to make space a street tunnel was built under the runway. This tunnel is used by trolley busses.

Here's a google map: http://bit.ly/ic3qFG

Between 2000 and 2005 or so. I think that the old numbers had a logic behind them, something like the numbers of the districts (29 = a line linking district 2 with district 9, 77 = totally inside district 7).

Work begins on Freilassing – Salzburg expansion
Friday, May 15, 2015



GERMAN federal minister for transport and digital infrastructure Mr Alexander Dobrindt attended a groundbreaking ceremony in the Bavarian town of Freilassing on May 11 to officially launch construction of a third track on the line to Salzburg

The €54m project includes the construction of 1.6km of additional track between Freilassing station and Salzburg Liefering, a new island platform for S-Bahn services at Freilassing, and a new single-track bridge across that Saalach River, which marks the border between Germany and Austria
