Austrian Trams - Linz


Independent transport videos welcome you to this DVD featuring the trams and trolleybuses in the Austrian cities of Linz and Salzburg. We begin at Linz, an industrial and commercial city in Upper Austria. Electric trams began operating in 1887 and today there are five lines including the Pöstlingbergbahn mountain tramway. They are operated by Linz Linien a division of Linz AG owned by the city and run on an unusual track gauge of 900mm. Next we move to the beautiful city of Salzburg, made famous by the film, ‘The Sound of Music’. Salzburg is the capital of the federal state of Salzburg in Austria, although there are no trams here, there is a large modern fleet of trolleybuses. The system is the largest in Western Europe and is operated by Salzburg AG, with the trolleybuses being branded OBusSLB. Trolleybuses began operating in 1940 and today there are eleven routes. Salzburg is a very beautiful city with commanding views of the mountains for you to enjoy.
