ÖBB to clear one track near derailment site, full rehabilitation days away
ÖBB is targeting single-track operations on Wednesday on the double-track Pottendorf line, where on Monday afternoon a Raaberbahn-operated train derailment happened that left one dead and 12 injured. The company hopes to partially resume services from 18.00 onwards.
Trains in the area around Münchendorf have been running between Achau and Wampersdorf instead. But, if everything goes according to plan, single-track operations will be started up in the evening. Regardless, ÖBB is warning travellers to play close attention to timetable information.
The other track on the Pottendorf line has suffered extensive damage as a result of the incident, ÖBB says. Based on current estimates, the rehabilitation works can take between three to five days. The railway company says the cause of the derailment of the Raaberbahn-operated train is still under investigation.
