Programme:

Continental Railway Solution Ltd is happy to announce its second Hungarian private passenger train to be hauled by a Class47 locomotive. This popular English locomotive was transported to Hungary in 2016 and was given the name Falcon. At the beginning of 2017 all the necessary documents for operation in Hungary were obtained. It is a very rare occasion that it will be seen in front of a passenger train. At this time we get to know the famous Semmering Railway.

1. Day

The Semmering Railway, built over 41 km of high mountains between 1848 and 1854, is one of the greatest feats of civil engineering from this pioneering phase of railway building. The high standard of the tunnels, viaducts and other works has ensured the continuous use of the line up to the present day. It runs through a spectacular mountain landscape and there are many fine buildings designed for leisure activities along the way, built when the area was opened up due to the advent of the railway.

The highlights of the Falcon Semmering tour:
During the journey, you will be able take the „20 Schilling Picture”, just with the Class 47 and her train.

How can it happen?

From Semmering station we take a brief walk to a spot called the „20 schilling view”. Our train will depart back to Breintenstein very slowly on the bridges and approximately 30 minutes later it will come back to Semmering when our guests will have the unique opportunity to take their "20 Schilling Picture" with the Falcon. After taking the pictures we continue our journey to Mürzzuschlag by the private train, where the organised programme is finished. (We can help to advise accommoditon)

2. Day

The next day there is chance to visit the SÜDBAHN Museum where the International Heritage Railway Parade will be held and one of the special guests will be the Class47.

The Museum can be found at the Foot of the Semmering Railway UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 150 year anniversary of the Semmering Railway, which is probably the best known part of the old ‘Südbahn’ southern route from Vienna to Trieste, was the occasion for the creation of the SÜDBAHN Museum historico-cultural railway adventure world, right by Mürzzuschlag station.

At late afternoon our special train departs from Mürzzuschlag station and head back to Budapest, where we arrive late evening.
