Austria Narrow-Gauge RailwaysAustria Narrow-Gauge RailwaysThe first railway in Austria was the narrow-gauge line from Gmunden in the Salzkammergut to Budweis, now in the Czech Republic, this was 1,106 mm (3 ft 7+1/2 in) gauge. Some two dozen lines were built in 760 mm (2 ft 5+15/16 in) gauge, a few in 1,000 mm (3 ft 3+3/8 in) metre gauge gauge. The first was the Steyrtalbahn. Others were built by provincial governments, some lines are still in common carrier use and a number of others are preservation projects. The tramway network in Innsbruck is also metre gauge, in Linz the rather unusual gauge of 900 mm (2 ft 11+7/16 in) is in use.384 km 1,000 mm (3 ft 3+3/8 in) metre gauge gauge; 88 km 760 mm (2 ft 5+15/16 in) gauge (2008)Austria Metre-Gauge Railways
