The Attergaubahn is a metre gauge railway which runs from a small station across the tracks from the ÖBB station at Vöcklamarkt to Attersee. It is electrified at 750 Volt overhead. The railway is a division of Stern & Hafferl Holdings.
26111 & 26112 were originally built in 1951 for the BTB (Baselland Transport) in Switzerland and numbered BCe 4/4 8 & 9 until 1956 when the class was changed to ABe 4/4. In 1984 they were stored and in 1988 were sold to the Traunseebahn and re-numbered 23.109 & 23.110. In 1999 they were transferred to the Attergaubahn and renumbered 26.111 & 26.112.
The Attergaubahn approaches the ÖBB mainline through Vöcklamarkt at a 90 degree angle passing a woodworking factory before curving right to their small station. Unit 26112 is arriving at Vöcklamarkt with train R8319 (12:16 from Attersee) on Thursday September 26th, 2002.
