Urban Rail in Austria's Capital City Vienna
The Austrian capital can be proud of having one of Europe’s best public transport systems. Besides the ever-growing U-Bahn network, the city boasts one of the world’s most extensive tramway networks. The system is complemented by the Badner Bahn (Wiener Lokalbahn) and the S-Bahn operated by the ÖBB, so for the railway enthusiast there is a lot to explore.
This book includes everything you want to know about the history of the Vienna U-Bahn, from its origin as a steam-hauled Stadtbahn in 1898 up to the recent U1 extension to Oberlaa, and the city's tram network (including the underground tram sections), with the evolution of the Badner Bahn and the S-Bahn as well as all the current rolling stock covered too.
