Boiling Tube leak 8th December 2015

Due to a leaking boiler tube, the Mh.6 had to be replaced by a class E (former 1099) locomotive for today´s scheduled trip to Mariazell.  The damage was discovered by our crew after arriving in St. Pölten Alpenbahnhof in the morning in form of a massive loss of water.

We apologize for any inconvenience and hope for an easy and rapid repair of the damage in cooperation with the NÖVOG.
