ÖBB 1099 Electric Locomotive. These 6600 V electric locomotives were designed for the Mariazeller Bahn running south from St. Pölten in 1911. The track gauge is 760 mm ( 30 inch) and are rated at 420kW, 563 hp with a top speed of 50 km/h, 31 mph. The locomotives ride on 2 6 wheel trucks fitted with side rods.
This locomotive was built by Krauss in Linz (serial number 8098) in 1910 as number E8 of the NÖLB (Niederösterreichische Landesbahnen). The number was retained by the BBÖ (Bundesbahnen Österreich 1918-1938) and it was carried until the Deutschen Reichsbahn  took over operation from 1938 when it became E99 08. In 1953 the ÖBB renumbered it to1099.08. It was modernized with a new body and electro-pneumatic controls in January 1962.
