Gradually the capacity on the Pyhrn Line is being expanded. The doubling of the tracks between the stations Hinterstoder and Pießling-Vorderstoder will provide more space for passenger and freight trains and therefore a better train service. The partial straightening of the track will also save about 2 minutes travelling time. Trains can run at up to 160 km/h instead of the previous 100 km/h on the section of line after the conversion. This will contribute to the long-term goal of being able to complete a Linz–Selzthal Line in 1 hour and 15 minutes - about 15 minutes faster than before.
