On 29 May 1898 the mountain railway up to the top of Pöstlingberg went into service. It is not actually a cog railway as in our model but the steepest adhesion railway in Europe at a gradient of 10.5%. Great daring and enterprise were needed for this project as such a steep adhesion railway had never been built before. The valley station on display here is a solid, functional building in the style of the turn of the century. The entrance is flanked by two eye catching turrets and the outer walls are very beautifully constructed with a timber framework filled in with bricks.
