Aplensauber? I suppose you mean "Alpenstaubsauger", right? That literally means "alps vacuum cleaner" which refers both to the origin of this loco (Austria, while this class is also used on alpine routes) and the sound of the fans.

Note: this is not an ÖBB 4010, it is a Westbahn 4010! After the ÖBB 4010 EMUs went out of service some years ago, the new Westbahn EMUs got this number.

This is obviously a DMU and not an EMU (there is no catenary, no pantograph, and the 5XXX stands for DMU in the Austrian numbering system). Unfortunately, I do not have the privileges to update the database.

Amazing mountain and - hmm - not so amazing train (the design is not to my taste, to be honest). Anyway, great pic!

Indian Summer in Arkansas? Beautiful - even the locos have perfectly matching colors!

Wow, that's the Battersea power station shown in the background, the one that is shown on the cover of Pink Floyd's 1977 album "Animals".

@John: the new bridge is supposed to replace the old one. Interestingly, as far as I know, the old one is a protected monument. Don't know what will happen with it once the new one is finished. Just as a side note: the new bridge could have been put into service years ago, but that's another (not so) funny story...

It's the so-called "Angerschlucht bridge" aka "Angertal bridge". As far as I have seen, there is no dedicated Wikipedia page about it, but you can find some information on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tauern..ilway

A photo showing the old and the new bridge is also available: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datei:..e.jpg

Sadly, this beautiful vintage loco was severely damaged by a fire that was supposedly caused by some technical failure.

That picture is from May, right? Has the new bridge (the shadow of which can be seen in the bottom right corner of the picture) been opened yet?

Nice picture of a nice nostalgic train! The first coach ("CityShuttle"), however, somehow spoils the picture, which is of course not the photographer's but ÖBB's fault.
