The GySEV is unique! An international railway that avoided the clutches of Communism and the dowdy state imperialism of the post war period to emerge in the 21st century as a modern link between east and west. To say that the GySEV is a private railway is an over simplification, its major share holders are the governments of the two countries it links, Austria and Hungary. It has, however, developed in its own way, borrowing a little from both sides but retaining a distinctive flavour of its own. To add to the charm of the system the electrified main line from Gyor-Sopron-Ebenfurti Vasut (or Ebenfurth in German) along which ply international passenger trains and huge quantities of freight, is crisscrossed by branch lines that seem to belong to a different era. Along the Neusiedl am See 'branch' that runs to the east of the Neusiedler See, the 'pick up goods train' is alive and well! The whole area is covered by the film. We start in Vienna at the ÖBB's unusual triangular terminal -the Siad bahnhof, and then follow the mainline towards the Semmering and Italy. Ebenfurth is where the GySEV meets the ÖBB and where our adventure begins..... TTR16-1 was filmed by professional signal engineer Gerald Masser. This is very much his home patch! Gerald helps give a wonderful insight into the operation of the line and some personal perspectives. Its certainly true that few railways in the world pack so much variety into a 100km long single track route! Sit back and enjoy! TTR16-1 will be followed in the summer by, yes, TTR16-2, which will cover the Hungarian section of the route: Sopron and its international freight yard, and the beautiful city itself, the ÖSBB route to Deutschkreuz, the MAV branch to Nagycenk, the bottom section of the Neusiedlseebahn below Pamhagen and, naturally, the main line to Gyor. Both video productions are narrated by Phyllis Watts and provided with quality graphics. (By 'popular demand' we are including a 'hard copy' of the system map in the video pack, a feature that we hope to continue).
