Books

The Austrian Railway Group is proud of its range of books on various aspects of Austrian railways and tramways. They provide a unique English language resource for rail enthusiasts and visitors to Austria alike.

In each book we offer the reader our knowledge of a city, region, route or topic. This usually includes a brief local history, a chronological account of the evolution of rail services, details of the past and present line(s) and stock and a section for modellers.
