A left over from the times of the k.u.k. monarchy Austria-Hungary…this train ist still driving today with the old traditional waggons . During the years 1902 – 1980 it was the connection from Bregenz to Bezau. 1985 a society was founded to keep up with this old tradition and now the train is driving between Schwarzenberg and Bezau….still with steam…along a picturesque landscape……lean back and relax
