Classic electric locomotive ÖBB 1010 003-0 (1955) in Vienna, Austria

While I was waiting for a Railjet in the modern architecture of the new Vienna Central Station, a vintage locomotive sneaked in. It was a model of the rare ÖBB Class 1010. Only 20 units saw their construction in the years 1955–1958. [German]

The depicted engine is still in operation for chartered trains. It is run by the Railway Club 1018. On the day of our surprise encounter, the locomotive 1010 003-0 drew a Hungarian vintage train to the Slovenian city of Koper.
