Austria: Freight and passenger trains as in ÖBB- times on the Waldviertler narrow-gauge railwayl

The Waldviertler narrow-gauge railway runs along a varied landscape (ponds, forests, meadows, fields) from Alt Nagelberg over a length of 13 km to Heidenreichstein. About halfway there is a striking bridge structure and the Aalfang railway station with its historic ensemble. In addition to the preserved telegraph line, several farms also adorn the route.

For over 15 years, the Waldviertler Schmalspurbahnverein (Waldviertler Narrow Gauge Railway Association) has again made it possible to run authentic trolley trains, which is unique in Austria.  Our freight train with passenger transport will be alternately covered with the 2091.09 and the 2092.04 and of course carry along a standard gauge car. Of course, the tasty goulash and the fluffy Kaiserschmarrn must not be missing.

October 11, 2020, Sunday 
The main focus of our photo trips in the Waldviertl is on the historic diesel locomotives: Locomotive 2091.09 (red, year of construction 1940) and Locomotive 2092.04 (red, year of construction 1943).

In addition, the Waldviertler Schmalspurbahn has typical Waldviertler passenger (2-axle, 4-axle) and freight wagons (2-axle, 3-axle, 4-axle, open and closed), as well as a standard gauge freight wagon, which are inscribed in the ÖBB condition of the 1970/80s.

Today we first drive a typical Waldviertler GmP with 2091.09 formed by freight and passenger cars. Extras and road vehicles along the route enliven the scenes in the Waldviertel.

(All booked participants will receive the detailed programme of the event with their booking.)
