Some distance east of Graz in Styria is the Steiermärkishe Landesbahnen route between Feldbach and Bad Gleichenberg. Unusually the line is electrified at 1.8kV dc. This view taken on 21 March 2002 shows railcar ET1 at the terminus at Bad Gleichenberg; this is one of two cars dating from the opening of the line in 1931, though it has been rebuilt extensively.
