Erlauf Valley Railway

Travelling through the Erlauf Valley with 100% green mobility.The picturesque Erlauf Valley Railway stretches from Pöchlarn via Wieselburg to Scheibbs. To make it fit for the future, line and stations are being electrified and modernised. Tracks will be upgraded to comply with the state of the art. Thus, travelling by train will be faster, more comfortable and resource-friendly.

Revitalisation of a region

Rail traffic along the Erlauf river will be transferred to a new dimension. Diesel trains are history, as soon as the entire line is equipped with a catenary system. Trains can then run on 100% green traction current, which is good for our environment! Electrification is also accompanied by an increase in travel speed. In future, you will reach your destination faster - by road and by rail. This is because numerous railway crossings will also disappear in the course of the construction work and will be replaced by underpasses or overpasses. All railway stations will be given a new look. Considering real-time passenger information is just as important as barrier-free design. Park & Ride facilities will make it even easier to switch from car to train. With this overall package of measures, we are equipping the region for the future and revitalising it. And on top of that, there are plus points for sustainability and for more safety in road traffic.
