Railway Art and History: Graz, Austria
by Robin Barnes

Robin Barnes, Railway Art and History
A vividly evocative survivor of once great Austria-Hungary, Graz-Koflacher Bahn No.415 stands at Graz, in south-east Austria, one day in May 1965, still in first class mechanical order, in steam, and ready to work an evening rush-hour train down the line to Koflach. Built in 1897 by Wiener Lokomotivfabrik, Floridsdorf, (maker's number 1108), for the Sudbahn, Type 17c, it typifies the classic 19th Century mid-European 4-4-0, and was by the date of the photograph one of the last two active examples in Europe of this once-popular passenger locomotive arrangement (the other was sister engine GKB 372).
