INTERESTING FACTS

The over 125-year-old steam-powered cog locomotives are some of the oldest in the world that are still in operation. Since fewer and fewer businesses have the necessary expertise, almost all repairs are done at the workshop in St. Wolfgang. Each journey requires about four hours of preparation time. A trip up and down the mountain consumes about 500 kg of coal and 3,000 l of water.
