Driving Trailer VT8

Michael Taylor

760mm Gauge ( 30 inches). Narrow gauge railway running from Jenbach (junction with the OBB & Achenseebahn) to Mayrhofen.

Jenbach on Saturday September 15th, 2001.
3 car DMU led by motor unit VT8 (Triebwagen) arrives with train #8838 from Mayrhofen at 16:35. Motor units are rated at 250 kW,  335 hp with 70 km/h, or 43 mph maximum.
Notice how the power unit has bodyside cut-outs over the wheel sets and that another Triebwagen is at the other end. Usually there would be a non-powered driving unit ( Steuerwagen ) at one end.
