Austria: Ybbstalbahn – Steep steam over Trestle bridges

On the Ybbstal mountain railway we drive with the steam locomotive U1 from Kienberg over the steep section to Lunz am See, which was put back into operation after a long shutdown. On the Trestlework bridges typical for this route and in the striking rocky incisions, suitable photo stops are of course planned. At the historic Pfaffenschlag train station, our train takes water before continuing towards Lunz.
