Austria - Achenseebahn
This is a metre gauge rack and adhesion railway that runs due north from Jenbach in the Tirol. The first 4km are rack-worked on the Riggenbach system as far as Eben. From there the line descends gradually for a further 3km to a terminus on the Achensee, using adhesion only. The line opened in 1889 and still has three of the original 0-4-2RT steam locomotives which continue to work all trains.
