The weekend of the 16 th december i made a ride to Laubenbachmühle. So, whats special there? The small town in lower Austria will be the operation centre of the Mariazellerbahn, which operates between the lower austrian capital St. Pölten and Mariazell since 1907. So far, there flow much water down the pielach valley, the first electric locos are still in service today - they are the oldest electric locomotives in regular service of the world, that record is worth a visit and a ride. After years of incertain future the operator Növog unveiled the "Himmelstreppe", a new trainset that should bring the line into a sucessful future... Good Luck
