aviation: The Wachaubahn starts in the 2024 summer season


The Wachaubahn starts the summer season on March 16, 2024, just in time for the apricot blossom. You can also find out about the current status of the modern measuring vehicle used for digital inspection of the railway infrastructure.

The “EM120VT” from the Austrian company Plasser & Theurer ensures precise infrastructure data acquisition and thereby significantly optimizes the planning of maintenance work. “Digital measurement technology replaces complex surveying work and provides the basis for efficient maintenance of the railway infrastructure.” “With the revolutionary EM120VT measuring vehicle, digital measurement technology is raised to a new level and is being used for the first time on our historic Wachau railway line,” emphasizes LH deputy Udo Landbauer.

Modern maintenance of railway lines is based on precise knowledge of the condition of the infrastructure. The “EM120VT” measuring vehicle from Plasser & Theurer provides data from all components of the route with an unprecedented level of detail in just one pass in one night. The data recorded seamlessly and precisely includes all relevant parameters of the track, switches, ballast bed/superstructure, substructure, overhead line and surroundings. The evaluation of this data enables a holistic approach, which enables efficient planning of condition-based maintenance work. “The data shows, for example, possible wear on the rail head, rail surface or sleeper defects. The integrated geo-radar also examines the gravel bed under the sleepers and detects dirt or mud spots. The results also show exactly what needs to be done, when and where. “This enables us to implement construction measures in an extremely proactive and cost-efficient manner,” adds Barbara Komarek, Managing Director of Niederösterreich Bahnen.

Another advantage is that the measurement data is obtained when the track is under load and an actual profile is thus collected. Other machines can use this data directly, for example for ongoing condition assessment. Software compares the actual profile with a predefined target profile, classifies the deviations and documents all data.

The Wachaubahn starts the season on March 16, 2024. For frequent travelers, the season ticket is available at a special price with a 50 percent discount until May 1, 2024. Excursion guests remain flexible with the hop-on hop-off day ticket – they can get on and off at any stop as often as they like.
