Austria: Full steam ahead on
the Ybbstalbahn with the U 1

25 June 2023

Austria: Ybbstalbahn

On Monday, 5 October 2020, we also offer a photo tour on the Ybbstalbahn as part of our 4-day Austria tour. The steam locomotive U 1 of the Ybbstalbahn will be used with a passenger train, supplemented by 2 or 3 goods wagons. 

On the Ybbstalbahn mountain line, we travel with the steam locomotive U1, which has been put back into service after a long period of disuse, from Kienberg over the steep line to Lunz am See. Of course, there are suitable photo stops on the trestlework bridges typical of this line and in the striking rocky outcrops. Our train takes water at the historic Pfaffenschlag station before continuing towards Lunz.

As is customary at Tanago, all participants ride on the train. On the transfer sections, we "decorate" the locomotive and wagons with high-visibility waistcoats, as non-paying onlookers are absolutely undesirable on this trip.

On our last journeys, we were able to take many beautiful pictures on the route and have been able to discover even more interesting motifs that now need to be realised.
