Gail Valley Railway

The Gail Valley Railway between Arnoldstein and Hermagor has been completely modernised as of 2019. In addition to extensive investments in stations and railway facilities, the entire line to Hermagor has been electrified. Passengers on the Hermagor - Arnoldstein line can thus enjoy a contemporary modern rail service.

Modernisation of the railway infrastructure

The modernisation of the railway infrastructure in the Gail Valley is an important building block for making public transport in Carinthia more attractive. Various station conversions have significantly increased the comfort for travellers and made it easier to switch to the environmentally friendly railway. The modernisation or abandonment of railway crossings also increases traffic safety in the area. It is not only from an ecological point of view, that the electrification of the entire line from Arnoldstein to Hermagor is the highlight of our modernisation initiative. The conversion to electric trains will save around 1300 tonnes of CO2 per year in the Gail Valley alone.
