100 Years ÖBB
The railway in Austria has had an eventful history since its inception. On 19th July 1923, the National Council passed the Federal Railway Act, which for the first time established a distinct economic body, the Austrian Federal Railways (BBÖ) as an enterprise. Due to the coal poverty at the time, it resulted in a wave of electrification. Post-World War II, the focus was on rebuilding. This was followed by the replacement of steam locomotives and the introduction of the first interval timetable.
After the transformation from a state-owned enterprise into a company in 1992 on the occasion of the upcoming EU accession, the ÖBB was restructured in 2004 as the ÖBB Holding AG with operational subsidiaries. For the 2008/2009 timetable, the Railjet trains were put into operation. They are among the fastest locomotive-hauled trains in the world.
One hundred years later, the Austrian Federal Railways are celebrating this historic event. For this occasion, a particularly attractive Railjet will be put on the tracks. The motto of this train is: “100 years ÖBB – 100 reasons to work for the ÖBB”.
