|The Attergaubahn is a metre gauge railway which runs from a
small station across the tracks from the ÖBB station at Vöcklamarkt to Attersee. It is electrified at
750 Volt overhead. The railway is a division of Stern & Hafferl
26111 & 26112 were originally built in 1951 for the BTB (Baselland Transport) in Switzerland and numbered BCe 4/4 8 & 9 until 1956 when the class was changed to ABe 4/4. In 1984 they were stored and in 1988 were sold to the Traunseebahn and re-numbered 23.109 & 23.110. In 1999 they were transferred to the Attergaubahn and renumbered 26.111 & 26.112.
Interesting to compare the changes at Vöcklamarkt since my September 2002 visit. The Attergaubahn now shares the new ÖBB platforms. 26 111 photographed at 15:40 on Monday October 27th, 2003 from train E1742 (Linz to Salzburg).
