The Kaltenleutgebner Bahn or also the Kaltenleutgender Bahn is a branch line of the Südbahn from Vienna - Liesing to Kaltenleutgenz in Lower Austria . It was put into operation in 1883 as the Liesing – Kaltenleuthaben local railway and originally served both passenger and freight transport. A large part of the originally 6.7 kilometers long route leads through Perchtoldsdorf municipality. In the 1950s, passenger traffic was discontinued and the section between Waldmühle and Kaltenleuthaben was removed. After the complete closure of the cement works in Waldmühle, the railway line was decommissioned as a public railway on January 29, 2014 by decision of the Ministry of Transport . Since the beginning of 2015, the route has been leased by the real estate company of the municipality of Perchtoldsdorf with an option to purchase and is to be retained for the time being for nostalgic train traffic; on September 3, 2017, the route was reopened for nostalgic trips. Since 2017, the line is legally a connecting railway.
In 1880 the Local Railway Act was enacted for Austria . This opened up the entry into the railroad sector, which was regarded as lucrative, for companies that had not yet had a chance or had hardly had a chance.
Initially, the Munich locomotive factory Krauss & Comp. a permit to carry out preliminary technical work has been granted. However, the Imperial and Royal Privileged Southern Railway Company (presumably out of concern for competition) successfully remonstrated , so that in the summer of 1882 they not only obtained the concession for the Kaltenleutgender line, but also the concession for a railway from Mödling to Vorderbrühl ( Mödling – Hinterbrühl local railway ).
However, Krauss & Comp. In 1882 the concession for the steam tram from Hietzing to Perchtoldsdorf and in 1886 for the route from Perchtoldsdorf to Mödling . This later electrified line was the tram line 360, which ran until November 30, 1967 and which between 1940 and 1942 was likely to have at times the heaviest traffic that was ever handled on a single-track tram line in Europe. Trains on this tram line, which only ran between Mauer and Perchtoldsdorf , had the line designation 260.
By decree of October 4, 1882, the Imperial and Royal Ministry of Commerce approved the detailed project submitted by the Südbahngesellschaft (pursuant to Section 5 of the concession document) in principle; The political inspection of the route was set for November 13, 1882 by the Imperial and Royal Lieutenancy.
In June 1883 the traffic handover of the railway was expected for the second week of August , later the opening of the line for August 18, 1883 was announced. The festive test drive took place on the afternoon of August 17, 1883. The journey took 23 or 28 minutes, depending on the reporting. - According to the winter timetable of the southern railway , six trains ran daily in each direction from November 5, 1883 . For probably the same date, the names of the station managers were announced for the Perchtoldsdorf , Rodaun , Waldmühle and Kaltenleutbaren locations . The Neumühle station was originally only intended as a (freight) charging station and was only opened to passenger traffic on August 1, 1884.
According to the chronicle of the market town of Kaltenleutzüge, the train was so popular that up to 23 pairs of trains ran in the summer months. The idea was to extend the railway via Sulz in the Vienna Woods to the Western Railway . But that never happened.
Since Kaltenleutgeber was already a popular ski area with the Viennese at the turn of the century, the Kaltenleutgebner Bahn was the first line in Austria that also transported Schier. Instead of a separate ticket, you had to buy a dog card . In addition to the importance of Kaltenleuthaben as a place for winter sports close to the city, which continued into the 1950s, the railway to develop the Dürren Liesing area for non-seasonal hikers was of equal, if not more important, importance.
On the basis of the agreement of March 29, 1923, Federal Law Gazette No. 546 ("Rome Agreement"), the southern railway lines in Austria, including Liesing – Kaltenleutgabe, were leased to the State of Austria from January 1, 1924. According to Article 11 (2) of the Brioni Agreement of August 10, 1942 (Deutsches Reichsgesetzblatt Part II, 23rd Part / 1943), they came into the ownership of the German Reich with effect from July 6, 1943 (Reichseisenbahngut). The latter treaty was declared null and void in the peace treaty with Italy on February 10, 1947.
The intersection of the Kaltenleutgebner Bahn with the tram line 360 (see above) was in the north of Perchtoldsdorf, just west of the Bahngasse / Donauwörther Strasse intersection in the area of the former Rodaun station of the Kaltenleutgebner Bahn. From 1946, just north of this intersection, a track branched off from the tram route to Rodaun station. Even after the tram line was closed until 1977, tram cars were transferred to or taken over from the Wiener Linien track network via this track . These cars were in the factory of the company. & Pen Graef in Atzgersdorf built or repaired and were from there first on the siding Liesing in the Bahnhof Liesing and then transported by train to Liesing on the Kaltenleutgebner Rodaun.
After the tram was discontinued in 1967, Donauwörther Strasse was built on its route. The route of the Kaltenleutgebner Bahn was moved a few meters to the south on the border of Perchtoldsdorf and Rodaun and runs along the Bahngasse where the tracks of the tram line and its Rodaun stop (siding) used to be. The place where the Rodaun station of the Kaltenleutgebner Bahn was located is where the road joins Hochstraße on the Vienna border.
Until the end of the 1940s, trains and trams were the most important means of transport for people in this local recreation area. So it was considered to expand the railway beyond Sulz in the Vienna Woods to Pressbaum , where it should meet the Western Railway . These plans were not implemented.
Since the end of the 1920s, the Austrian Federal Railways planned - as a cost-saving measure - to close the lines Liesing – Kaltenleutgabe, Mödling – Hinterbrühl and Mödling – Laxenburg . In order to prevent the impending end, the mayors of the municipalities most affected called on November 30, 1931 at the General Directorate of the Federal Railways. The review of the planned measures promised by the transport company at this meeting should have temporarily spared the Kaltenleutgebner Bahn, since the other two local railway lines were decommissioned on March 31, 1932.
The 1938/38 winter timetable - with a journey time of 18 to 25 minutes, 8 trains on weekdays and 18 trains on Sundays - and the 1939 summer timetable - with a journey time of 19 minutes each 10 trains on weekdays and 16 trains on Sundays - are likely to have the highest traffic densities on passenger trains - exhibit. In the 1944 timetable, only seven trains with a journey time of 21 minutes each appear. After the war-related interruption, freight traffic was resumed at the beginning of October 1945 and passenger traffic was resumed in 1946, with three trains running on weekdays and one train on Sundays. In the winter timetable 1947/48 there are two trains from Monday to Friday. In the period from 1949 to 1951, six trains ran again on weekdays and seven on Sundays.
This was followed by the cessation of operations: January 29, 1951 Passenger, luggage and express goods on the Liesing – Kaltenleutgabe line, for goods traffic on the Waldmühle – Kaltenleutgabe section. Permanent suspension of all traffic in the Waldmühle – Kaltenleutgabe section from July 1, 1957.
The fact that the cessation of passenger traffic, at least from the summer of 1951, could not be justified by the absence of the public who were inclined to drive, can be proven by the shuttle service offered from June 3 of the year for sunny Sundays and public holidays between Rodaun and Kaltenleutbaren. A lack of coal was also officially given as a reason, although the railway has been operated with diesel locomotives since the summer of 1950.
A large ski sport event that promised 20,000 to 30,000 visitors, the downhill skiing Eisgrabenrennen and a gate run, was the reason that passenger traffic was started on February 25 and 26, 1956. On February 25, three pairs of trains with a total of 40 passenger cars were led from Vienna Südbahnhof to Kaltenleutbaren on February 25 and four on February 26. It was noteworthy that only return tickets were issued, the validity of which was limited to February 26, 1956.
The superstructure Waldmühle – Kaltenleutgabe was dismantled in 1959.
On October 19, 1979, a serious accident occurred at Rodaun station, in which three railway employees were killed and five people were injured. The brakes of a train with twelve cement wagons heading for Liesing had failed on the downhill stretch. Four wagons derailed in Rodaun station and destroyed the station building.
On May 24, 1986, the brakes on a work train on the Kaltenleutgebner Bahn were released. The train rolled unbraked into Liesing station, where it destroyed a trolley and the buffer stop. The locomotive rolled over the parking lot behind the end of the track, destroyed some parked vehicles and got stuck by the wall on the bed of the Liesingbach.
In recent years, the operation of the Kaltenleutgebner Bahn has been run by various railway companies, such as the ÖBB, LTE and GKB . In this way, the green painted diesel locomotive V 1100.1, the so-called "Leitinger locomotive" (after the company in whose colors it was painted) of the GKB came to the Kaltenleutgebner Bahn for a few months in 2004. It was replaced by the red colored V 1100.2 of the GKB.
The railway line now only leads to the Waldmühle station at the eastern end of Kaltenleutgebens and was recently only used by a cement factory for freight transport, which from December 2010 only took place when required and was discontinued in 2012. As a result, the route was no longer used as scheduled. Sometimes nostalgia trips were offered. The track leading to the Kaltenleutgabe station has been removed. Its course can still be seen in the forest along the Dürren Liesing , as well as the abutments of the former small bridge just before the Kaltenleutgabe train station. In the area of this train station is the residential complex "Hans-Coppel-Hof".
The track's superstructure (rails, ballast bed) was renovated over long stretches in 2008 to make the line safe for the heavy freight wagons.
Of the original five station buildings, the station building in Perchtoldsdorf is the last remaining structure of the railway. It is listed in the Dehio Handbook of the Federal Monuments Office and described there as a single-storey exposed brick building with half-timbering, carved decor and a wooden veranda. Since the ÖBB wanted to demolish the building and sell the property, the association “Pro Kaltenleutgebner Bahn” started a petition to preserve the building. By decision of August 12, 2011, the initiative was crowned with success. The historical object was placed under protection by the Federal Monuments Office.
On December 12, 2012, ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG, as the owner, announced the public search for interested parties, which would take at least three months, to hand over the Liesing – Waldmühle railway line (line no. 1601) from km 0.000 to around km 5.778 (end of the line) . This search for interested parties must be carried out in accordance with Section 28 (4) of the Railway Act, before a permanent cessation of operations can be approved due to the economic unreasonableness of the continuation of the route.
With a decision of January 29, 2014, the route was officially closed. The communities of Perchtoldsdorf and Kaltenleutzüge tried to secure the traffic area of the railway as a rail band. That was successful. In May 2017 it was reported that the decision that the line could be continued as a connecting railway became legally binding. The special trips of the association “Pro Kaltenleutgebner Bahn” were mentioned as an immediate possible use.
In the first months of the year 1881 the locomotive factory company Krauss and Comp. Approved by the Imperial and Royal Ministry of Commerce, for a stretch of Linienwall in Vienna - Hietzing - Lainz - Speising - Mauer - Liesing - Kalksburg - Rodaun - Perchtoldsdorf - Brunn a. G. - Maria-Enzersdorf - Mödling - Vorderbrühl - Hinterbrühl as well as Rodaun - Kaltenleutgabe to undertake technical preparatory work for the construction of a standard gauge local railway . - According to that project, 40 years later, Kaltenleutbaren would have been the terminus of a route branch belonging to tram line 360 .
Also in July 1882, the Imperial and Royal Ministry of Commerce granted the civil engineer Franz Mörth permission to carry out preliminary technical work for a local railway projected from Baden near Vienna via Sattelbach and Heiligenkreuz to Kaltenleuthaben - a project that except for the Baden line, which was already part of the Baden tram -Südbahnhof - Rauhenstein was never realized.
At the beginning of 1884 the Südbahngesellschaft seriously considered building a narrow-gauge local train from the Kaltenleutgabe station via Sulz (possibly Dornbach ) to Heiligenkreuz , and from there via Sattelbach to Sankt Helena to connect to the Baden tramway . According to an announcement by the General Directorate of the Südbahngesellschaft dated May 15 of the same year, this project was further substantiated by the announcement of technical surveys. - Like the Mörth project mentioned above, this initiative was never implemented, even if it came from the railway operator itself.
In the spring of 1899, the Ministry of Railways approved preliminary work for a line from Liesing via Kalksburg and Laab to Tullnerbach - Pressbaum with a branch from Rothenstadl to Breitenfurth - which did not result in a concession. Also the lower-order railway project launched towards the end of the year, which was supposed to lead from Klosterneuburg via Mauerbach , Purkersdorf , Klausen-Leopoldsdorf , Alland to Weissenbach an der Triesting (connection to the Leobersdorfer Bahn ) and whose route would include a connection from Klausen-Leopoldsdorf to Kaltenleut provided there was no future.
The passenger traffic was stopped. The last months before that, instead of steam traction, the Wehrmacht WR 360 C 14 locomotive was used.
Once again, special passenger trains operated as a ski express to the Eisgraben Wienerblick race in Kaltenleutgabe. Stars like Thea Hochleitner , Trude Klecker , Anderl Molterer , Othmar Schneider , Ernst Hinterseer and Hias Leitner come to the ski race . Since then there has been no regular passenger traffic.
The last 1.2 kilometers of rails were dismantled.
In the station area of Rodaun station, a train accident left three dead and several injured. A freight train coming from the Perlmoser operating area derailed due to defective brakes. For two of the train's wagons, it was already known from corresponding stickers on the wagons that their brakes were unusable, but this would still have been permissible, but only if the regulations on handling such situations (brake tests, etc.) were adhered to particularly closely. The cement wagons were buried the station building, which was later replaced by a gatekeeper house.
There are discussions about resuming passenger traffic on the Kaltenleutgebner Bahn, as the road through Rodaun to Kaltenleutgabe is very narrow and busy. To do this, however, the long-dismantled facilities for passengers such as stops, platforms, crossings, etc. would have to be rebuilt according to the current requirements (higher platform edges, etc.).
The extension of the express train service from Liesing station to Rodaun was investigated in a project at the Vienna University of Technology . This work comes to the conclusion that the expansion of the route is not recommended for reasons of cost. Arguments are u. a. the small number of inhabitants in the catchment area of the railway as well as the need to completely rebuild the line including platforms and electrification. A bus line or the extension of tram line 60 of Wiener Linien appear cheaper.
The Pro Kaltenleutgebnerbahn association presents a study by Herbert Seelmann on possible uses of the Kaltenleutgebnerbahn for passenger transport. In this, positive aspects of the railway are emphasized, as the road capacities are already very limited due to the constriction of the area. After comparing the various possible operating modes, the study author suggests a light rail variant. This could score points on the route with additional stops and could in future also be extended as a tram towards the center of Perchtoldsdorf and on the former line 360 towards Mödling. Although the majority of the superstructure has been renovated, the author suggests a route renovation. In theory, however, it would be possible to operate diesel vehicles immediately (after the platforms were built).
Since the Pro Kaltenleutgebnerbahn association is still striving to restart operations, a trial day of operation took place on June 17, 2012, when a series BR247 railcar from Raaberbahn AG offered passenger services between the Vienna Meidling station and the former Waldmühle terminus.
In a letter to politicians in Vienna and Lower Austria dated February 22, 2013, the citizens' initiative "Kalksburg - A village gets under the wheels" presented the extension of the Kaltenleutgebner Bahn to Breitenfurt, Laaber Spitz area, as a solution to cross-border commuter and environmental problems in Vienna and Lower Austria , through a railway tunnel, the construction of new and reactivation of old stations as well as the construction of two park-and-ride facilities. With regard to the necessary finances, the initiative based its proposal on the statement by Federal Transport Minister Doris Bures that there would be EU money rain from 2014 to 2020 for the construction of rail tunnels .
In May 2013, a study commissioned by the Verkehrsverbund Ost-Region ( Verkehrsverbund Ost-Region) provided the result that the resumption of rail operations in different variants was not justifiable due to the high investment costs and the comparatively low passenger potential .
In 2013, trains with frame wagons and steam or diesel locomotives were run between Liesing and Waldmühle for several days .
In 2014 there were no special trips on the Kaltenleutgebner Bahn.
At the beginning of the year, the municipality of Perchtoldsdorf will lease the entire length of the route (rent 5,500 euros per year) and has the option to buy it for 2017 at a price of 85,000 euros. The track systems are to be preserved so that the museum trips are possible again for the time being, but a resumption of full rail operations was not intended at the beginning of 2015 due to the high investment costs. The aim of the lease is to preserve the traffic belt as a track, and special trips are mentioned as a possible use for the near future. If the planned Tram on Demand project comes about, the infrastructure will be made available.
The line was legally recognized as a connecting railway in May 2017, it was reopened for special trains with the opening special runs on September 3, 2017. The municipality of Perchtoldsdorf had acquired the railway line and intends to keep the property as a transport belt and thus to preserve all future opportunities. This not least against the background that the demolition of the tram line 360 leading through the local area after 1967 is considered a serious mistake in 2017, which should not be repeated on the Kaltenleutgabeer Bahn. However, regular operations were not expected to commence in the next few years either.

Mark Twain (1835–1910), who during his stay in Vienna from September 28, 1897 to May 27, 1899 and from May 20, 1898, moved into summer quarters in Kaltenleuthaben for five months ( Villa Paulhof , Karlsgasse 3), used the train. He called it the slowest train in the world .
