Railways to the Orient were planned several times for this area , but never realized.
For the connection line planned by several factory owners at the beginning of the 1860s between Raaber (kk priv. Oesterreichische Staatseisenbahn-Gesellschaft ) and Gloggnitzer Bahn ( kk priv. Südbahn-Gesellschaft ), a concession was issued on September 30, 1864, according to which the railway In 1868 at the latest it should have gone into operation. Despite the wealth of the concessionaires and their co-interested parties, they could not agree on financial issues, and after the unsuccessful attempt to obtain tax exemption at a later date, the concession was returned.
According to the newly obtained concession document of August 23, 1869, for the construction and operation of a locomotive railway from Wiener-Neustadt to Grammat-Neusiedl , the railway (4.290 post miles or 32.5 km long) via Wampersdorf was opened on September 1, 1871 (for People and goods) opened ( Wiener-Neustadt-Gramat-Neusiedler Railway ). The line had the following seven stations when the traffic was handed over: Neustadt, Ober-Eggendorf, Ebenfurth, Pottendorf-Landegg, Unter-Waltersdorf, Mitterndorf, Gramat-Neusiedl.
Among the many railway projects of that time, the railway to be run on the right bank of the Danube from Vienna to Pressburg was the one whose realization would connect the capital of the Reich to the still young Transleithanien by the shortest route and would therefore be of corresponding importance from an economic point of view. Shortly after the Neustadt – Grammat-Neusiedl railway went into operation , the plan was to connect a Vienna – Preßburg railway with a line from Fischamend via Neusiedl , Schwadorf and Ebergassing to the connection station at Gramatneusiedl.
On September 10, 1872, the Wiener Bank-Verein received a concession to build and operate a locomotive railway from Vienna via Inzersdorf to Pottendorf and to the Hungarian border towards Oedenburg, and in 1875 also achieved a merger of this railway with the existing railway company into a legally registered railway company , the company Wien-Pottendorf-Wiener-Neustädter Bahn .
The line between Wampersdorf and Vienna Blumental (formerly Inzersdorf Metzgerwerke) opened on May 7, 1874. The piece between Blumental and Meidling followed on November 3, 1875 and ran on an elevated route, which was destroyed in the Second World War. Since then, the Donauländebahn has been used here , but the old route was still visible until 2005 until the two-track expansion.
The Vienna-Pottendorf-Wiener Neustädter Eisenbahn left the operation of the routes to the Southern Railway Company , after its nationalization in 1924 the routes were operated by the BBÖ , but the nationalization of the railway company took place later. Electrical operation began on April 29, 1974.
Today the line branches off from the Südbahn in Vienna Meidling . Since 1983, the section between Wiener Neustadt and Wampersdorf has been expanded to two tracks. The rest of the route is also to be completely expanded to two tracks.
With the timetable change on December 13, 2009, the Vienna Blumental train station was closed. After dismantling and renovation, the station was reopened on August 1, 2011 as the Wien-Blumental stop north of the old location; the Vienna Inzersdorf stop was closed.
Listed reception buildings are located in Ebreichsdorf - this is still in operation - and in Unterwaltersdorf . The latter was abandoned as a result of the suspension of passenger traffic between Gramatneusiedl and Wampersdorf, which took effect on December 15, 2002, and now houses a local history museum.
The double-track expansion of the 50 kilometer long Pottendorfer line between Vienna Meidling and Wiener Neustadt is an important measure to expand capacity on the southern route. On June 26, 2016, Franz Bauer, CEO of ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG, and Lower Austria's transport councilor Karl Wilfing, together with Jozef Vasak from the European Commission gave the official go-ahead for upgrading the line.
In December 2016, the Vienna South Freight Center with facilities for container handling, contract logistics and conventional wagonload traffic, which was built in the area of the former Inzersdorf Freight Station, went into operation.
The transport services Vienna-Inzersdorf and Vienna-Blumental were merged and moved to the newly built tower in the area of the Vienna South freight center.
The Hennersdorf station was dismantled from 2016 and replaced by a new building in an elevated position. With the new high station, a new town center with shopping facilities is to be created in the small community. The new Hennersdorf station has three platform tracks, a covered Park & Ride facility with 77 parking spaces, two charging stations for electric vehicles, ten motorcycle parking spaces and 82 bicycle parking spaces. These systems are all located directly under the track systems. The renewed Hennersdorf station was officially opened on November 21, 2018.
The Achau and Münchendorf train stations were also replaced by new buildings, which were opened together with the now double-track section Vienna Blumental - Hennersdorf - Achau - Münchendorf on November 22, 2019.
The Pottendorfer line is expected to be fully double-tracked by 2023 in order to relieve the busy southern line between Wiener Neustadt and Vienna and to create new capacities for passenger and freight traffic. A large part of the ten kilometer route around Ebreichsdorf still to be expanded as of the end of 2019 will be built as a new route in a different location around one kilometer east of the previous route. The Ebreichsdorf train station will be relocated to the east "on the green meadow" from the previous local area, bringing Unterwaltersdorf closer to the Pottendorfer line. A new city district is to be built around the new train station as part of the Ebreichsdorf Smart City project.

- The official opening date, September 1, 1871, was issued by the kk priv. Südbahngesellschaft and was therefore repeated accordingly by the media. Contrary to the concession regulations, however, the completion of the line is likely to have been delayed, which resulted in an extension of the deadline (until the end of October of that year) by the responsible ministry on August 12, 1871. September 30, 1871 may have been the day the line actually went into operation. - See: Railway News. (...)

these considerations, ten years later, in May 1882, Oscar von Lazarini (1844–1907) was granted the concession to build and operate a (28.73 km long) locomotive railway from Schwechat to Mannersdorf . In this document, the concessionaire was obliged, at the request of the state administration , to provide a branch from Schwadorf to Gramatneusiedl from the route leading via Groß-Schwechat, Fischamend and Schwadorf, the purpose of which was to connect to the Brucker Line - a connection with the Neustadt railway. Grammat-Neusiedl is not mentioned in the license document. (Also a Schwadorf – Gramatneusiedl connection touching Ebergassing was never built, but a connecting track leading to the Götzendorf Ostbahn station was put into operation on September 1, 1884. ) - See: Concessionsurkunde from May 19, 1882, for the Schwechat locomotive railway Mannersdorf.

Also planned in 1884 at Kledering was a connecting track from the Eastern Railway to the Donauländebahn (which touches Klein Schwechat) in order to create a relief line for the single-track Eastern Railway (via Fischamend to Götzendorf) or to save its double-track expansion. - See: Railway News.
