Semmeringbahn – Vorspeise

The Semmering Railway hardly needs an introduction. It is supposed to be the first standard gauge mountain railroad of the world! It connects Mürzzuchlag with Gloggnitz and is part of the busy South Railway in Austria. The railroad was built in 1854, it’s 41km long. It exists of 14 tunnels, 16 viaducts and over 100 bridges. As a starter, hereby some pictures of a commuter train that was active on this line between Semmering (the highest station on the Semmering Railway) and Payerbach.
