The Ybbstalbahn was a narrow gauge railway running through beautiful scenery in the lower Austrian Alps. The line was built between 1895 and 1899 and was initially used mainly for freight traffic. In the second half of the 20th century the emphasis moved towards passenger traffic on the picturesque line.

Ybbstalbahn – Eine Fotozeitreise begins with a description and overview of the railway, starting with the origins of the line and the construction years. The operating years and changing traffic patterns are covered right through to the closure of the railway in 2010. Plans to convert the railway to a tourist operation were sadly shelved in favour of a cycle path which has since been installed on part of the route between Gstadt and Göstling.

The descriptive introduction is followed by over 100 pages of photographs, mainly in colour, featuring the line throughout its history. All photographs are presented in one-per-page format and most are taken in the period between 1985 and 2010. Features a variety of passenger and freight traffic, with steam and diesel traction. German text. 144 pages. Hardback.
