On 29th and 30th of March 2019, the first track maintenance rides have been performed between Ober-Grafendorf and Rammersdorf. Woodcut was collected along the rails and taken to a collection point, on order to dispose it by road transport.
Further impressions can be found in the linked gallery.
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.
Dear travelers and friends!
Due to the persistent drought caused by the high tempertatures and the related high risk of wildfires in the region, the NÖVOG cancelled tomorrow´s Mh.6 hauled steam service on the Mariazell Railway. Instead by the Mh.6, tomorrow´s service will be powered by a class E (1099) electric locomotive.
We apologize for the circumstances of which we have just have been informed.
