We are a friendly society based in the UK for anyone interested in any
aspect of the railways of Austria. We cater for all tastes and

thing to scale models and model railways.
We share information, advice, news and reports on the Austrian rail
scene through our high quality quarterly printed journal, this website
and our online eGroup. We thrive on the contributions of members. Why

New Model Shop opens in Gravesend
, located at No. 15 The High street. Jim, the owner, is selling a large quantity of German models, a few Austrian models, and, he thinks, a couple of
Swiss models for the widow of their original owner. They are all boxed, apparently unused, and are from a number of manufacturers.
The German models are of different (but not modern) epochs, and include two versions of the Fliegender Hamburger (possibly Fleischmann).
He intends to use this collection as the basis for building up a stock of European models. He admits to not being an expert, especially where things like the German epochs are concerned.
FerroTrain are moving!

Sonderfahrt zum Jubiläum "100 Jahre Übelbacherbahn" mit ET 4042.01
, 4th August, 2019.
Message from Harald Süß.
On the 18 August 2019
we will celebrate the “130 years Steyrtalbahn” anniversary . As we don´t know how many steam engines will be operable in the summer,
we´ll only organise a station festival in Grünburg. Services between Steyr and Grünburg will run as normal.
In Grünburg visitors may expect:
– an exhibition of steam and diesel locos, maintenance vehicles and post car F 8460.
– local rides operated by 3 Kleinwagen (X 610, X 616, X626/VT 95) from Grünburg to Waldneukirchen and back between 10.00 and 17.00.
– a jumble sale of railway books.
– maybe a stand of FerroTrain
– catering service
– train mailing with postmarking in F 8460 on the 17.00 service from Grünburg to Steyr.
Mr. Neumann, from FerroTrain, also told me he plans to produce Kleinwagen X616.901 and X616.903 from the Steyrtalbahn (and others of type X616) in correct livery for the occasion.
