Present day: modernisation


The route of the Neusiedler Seebahn runs from the ownership boundary between the stations of Neusiedl am See (an Austrian Federal Railways station) and Bad Neusiedl am See (a Neusiedler Seebahn station), where the route connects to the Austrian Federal Railways network, via Pamhagen to Fertőszentmiklós in Hungary, where there is a connection to the Raaberbahn network. The full length of the route is 48.659 km, of which 37.929 km fall in Austrian territory. The Neusiedler Seebahn is an electrified secondary line with a 25 kV/50 Hz electrical power system for passenger and goods traffic.

Since the beginning of the modernisation programme in 2003, the technical measures implemented on the Neusiedler Seebahn route to increase the safety and quality of passenger transport and to increase speed include the following:
