About this product

The busiest railroad line in Austria

Today, the Westbahn is the busiest railroad line in Austria; during the monarchy, it was of lesser importance after the Nordbahn and Südbahn lines. The Westbahn was built in the 1850s and named after Empress Elisabeth, one of the famous first travelers on the way to her childhood home in Bavaria.

Together with her husband Emperor Franz Joseph, Empress Elisabeth also often traveled to the summer residence in Bad Ischl on the Westbahn. Special court trains had been built for this purpose, pulled by the type 306 locomotive depicted on the coin. Court trains consisted of about eight carriages for, among others, the court employees, the train management or the chaplain and the personal physician. There was also a dining car with a table for 16 people, a kitchen car and one for the luggage. The other side of the coin shows the arrival of a train at the Westbahnhof, the former Empress Elisabeth station, next to it the statue of Empress Elisabeth, which still has a place at the station.

The coin is sold including beautiful box and certificate of authenticity.
