Transfer of our Vehicles from St.Pölten to Ober-Grafendorf

On Friday the 22nd of May 2015 we transferred our “new” rolling stock to Ober-Grafendorf. As you can see in the following videos, this was also a very emotional event for the engineers who drove this engines for their last time.  More images about the transfer can be found via this Link.
