At St Anton we plunge into the double track Arlbergtunnel, it's 10km long but we don't keep you in the dark! Instead we take the opportunity to tell you what the future has in store for ÖBB services between Vienna, Salzburg and the Vorarlberg. It's a complicated story that involves DB and SBB! The Arlbergbahn descent to Bludenz is as spectacular as the ascent. Not all the stations we pass are original, some have been washed away by avalanches and storms - this is not an easy place to run a railway! We are incredibly lucky with the weather and so get some fantastic views over the Klostertal mountain range. When we reach the Ill industry pops up more frequently. Bludenz is a busy town- home of Milka Chocolate and the junction with the the Montafonerbahn to Schruns. The character of the route changes completely when we reach Feldkirch, here there is a connection with Switzerland through Liechtenstein. The run to Bregenz along the ausbaustrecke is busy, you will be amazed just how many freight facilities you can spot including the new Vbf at Wolfurt, a brewery, an aluminium extrusion works and several engineering factories, plus intermodals and, naturally, timber loading sites. Bregenz is an important tourist town on Lake Constance, benefiting from a stunning setting near the borders with both Germany and Switzerland - a lovely place to conclude our mammoth journey across Austria.
