The Linzer Lokalbahn is a standard gauge railway which runs from a small terminal (located about a 10 minute walk from the Hauptbahnhof) in Linz to Peuerbach and to Neumarkt-Kallham. It is electrified at 750 Volt  overhead. The railway is a division of Stern & Hafferl Holdings. 

22143 was built in 1954 by Westwaggon for the KBE (Köln-Bonner Eisenbahn) as their unit 55 and was sold in 1987 to the Linzer Lokalbahn. 22143 is in a siding at the Linz station of the Lokalbahn on Wednesday September 25th, 2002.
