Save the Achenseebahn!
The Achenseebahn, one of only three rack railways in Austria is
facing closure, occasioned by the withdrawal of funding by Land Tirol, this position has been arrived at as a result of a number of critical factors impacting the railway. Please spend a couple of minutes reviewing the Open Petition regarding the impending bankruptcy
and closure of the line. If you would like to show your support for the railway, please consider signing the petition. Your details will not be shared. The petition site also includes a short video about the line.
