Narrow Gauge Romanticism II

25 - 30 September 2021

Austria: Narrow Gauge Romanticism II

In 2020, we have already toured several Austrian narrow gauge railroads with our authentically assembled photo trains and have brought home unique pictures and videos. Furthermore, we were allowed to enjoy the friendship and hospitality of the railroads, railwaymen and locals. Therefore, we decided, we will definitely do it again.

For 2021 we have planned the following program: Start on the Breitenauerbahn (Mixnitz - St. Ehrhardt), then 1 day on the Ybbstalbahn with the U1 and a freight train, 3 days Mariazellerbahn, both 1099.14 and Mh.6 with freight trains will be used. Finally one day Ybbstalbahn with a mixed train. Our central tour hotel is again in Winterbach, from where we can easily reach the individual lines.
