Oberaudorf, Kufstein, Schaftenau, St. Jodok, Campo di Trens Freienfeld

Day 7: From Rosenheim to Bolzano

I'm on my way to Austria and Italy, here traveling on the Rosenheim-Kufstein railway
At Oberaudorf I can spot many trains from/to Italy

185 538, "Pure Gold" from TX Logistik

Nightjet from Hamburg and Amsterdam on the way to Innsbruck

Lokomotion on the way from Verona to Munich


"Pure Gold" can't continue all the way to Italy, so another set of locomotives is taking over here
From "Pure Gold" to "Natural Talent"


Somebody is waving at me

TX Logistik train has now left Kufstein

189 923, DB Cargo Italia

Transport of Audi cars

DB/Mercitalia/LKW Walter

The railway is busy here

I am ready to continue, but first I need to get back to Kufstein
Here at Kufstein I will change to a Railjet
Here is another TX Logistik arriving from Italy

Many photographers here

On the Railjet I have time to enjoy a beer
And a lunch
At Innsbruck I'm having a coffee in the lounge

I've now reached Brenner railway - here I am at Steinach in Tirol

"500th loco from Siemens to ÖBB"

The train I saw earlier in Kufstein 

St. Jodok

The maximum grade on the track is 31 per thousand. The minimum curve radius is 264 metres. The highest point of the track is Brenner station at 1,371 metres, which is also the highest point reached on the standard gauge networks of the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) and the Italian Ferrovie dello Stato (FS) networks.

To overcome the steep climb (796 metres between Innsbruck and Brenner) two spiral tunnels were built, using the sides of a valley at St. Jodok on the Austrian side and the sides of the Pflerschtal (German for "Pflersch Valley") on the Italian side. (Wikipedia)

Gries am Brenner
The station is located 1255 m above sea level


At Vipiteno Val di Vizze I can spot an interesting train
I think that this train is usually taking the route through Tarvisio Boscoverde, but there it is closed during July, so the trains are re-routed through Brennero or Slovenia

These Traxx DC3 are only made for operations in Italy
