Night trains: ÖBB presents Nightjet

filed on: 23.09.2016 (23rd Sep 2016)

OeBB introduces Railjet night trains Following up on previous reports on ÖBB taking over some of DB's night train services from Switzerland, ÖBB has finally put an end to the speculation. Their existing night train network is being rebranded Nightjet (following on from their railjet brand for modern daytime intercity trains). The trains will be painted in a dark blue livery. Furthermore, three ex DB routes are being taken over, two of them starting in Austria and the third being Basel to Hamburg. This would imply that the train is being curtailed to Basel instead of Zürich and also that the Amsterdam, Berlin and Prague services are definitely being discontinued.

Neverthless it is good to see ÖBB break and unpleasant trend here. I wish them every success.
