Ventus train at Petržalka station

Bratislava-Petržalka railway station is a station in Petržalka, the southern part of Bratislava. The station was built in 1897. The station was rebuilt in the 1990s as a terminus for international trains to and from Vienna, which restarted in 1999 after having stopped in 1945. Shuttle trains between the station and Wien Hauptbahnhof operate approximately once per hour.
The station is a connection point between the southern Slovak 25 kV/50 Hz electrification and Austrian 15 kV/16.7 Hz. (Wikipedia)

The train to the main station

Actually, I could have taken a bus directly from Petrzalka to main station - it would be much faster. But I'm a train fan so it has to be by train, even if it takes much longer time

Main station
From the main station I'm taking another local train one stop to Studienka station
Bratislava Železná studienka railway station is a small railway station (technically a train halt) inside the Bratislava Forest Park recreational zone in northern Bratislava, Slovakia. The station is still in use, although few trains stop here nowadays. 
Until 1947, the train station was called Červený most (Red bridge in English). From 1947 to 1951 it was called Bratislava - Červený most. In 1951 it received its current name Bratislava - Železná studienka. It is named after the area it is situated in - Železná studienka (Little iron well in English). The name comes from the fact, that in the past people thought the water source here was rich in iron and minerals, but 19th century analysis showed the water here is not mineral.
The current train station was established in 1904 under the name Bratislava - Red Bridge (in German Rote Brücke, in Hungarian Vörös híd), being named after the nearby bridge. The waiting room and station-guard's house, both from 1904, are culturally protected. (Wikipedia)

The line is of great importance, connecting Bratislava with Czechia and Austria
