Westbahn expands to meet demand

AUSTRIAN open-access operator Westbahn has announced it will introduce additional Friday, Saturday and Sunday peak services between Vienna and Linz from October 2 to accommodate rising demand.

Westbahn will operate some trains in multiple by using its seventh EMU, which is usually kept as a maintenance reserve. The company says that this move will only have a very limited impact on performance due to high availability of the Stadler Kiss trains.

However, from October 16, Westbahn will hire a locomotive and four coaches from German Rail (DB), which will be used on Vienna - Linz services. These trains will have a lower-specification interior than Westbahn's EMUs and will branded "Formel 5" to distinguish them from its other services. The name indicates that a price of €5 is being charged for each leg of the trip (Vienna - St.Pölten, St.Pölten - Amstetten, and Amstetten - Linz). If these services are commercially successful they may continue to operate in 2016.

Bron en meer

Het private Westbahn dat treindiensten uitvoert tussen Wenen en Salzburg gaat zijn aanbod uitbreiden met extra treindiensten in het weekend en bovenal een dienst bieden die sneller is dan de Railjet van ÖBB op de as Salzburg - Wenen.
Komt wel goed schatje.
