ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the introduction of the Railjet trains built by Siemens in the long-distance services of Austrian Federal Railways or OBB. The order of 67 trains is part of the plan to modernise the services and costs 816 million euros. A Taurus electric locomotive powers each of the seven coaches comprising the trains. The layout of the Premium Class in the driving trailer is said to be designed to maximise leg room.
