I admired the fancy canvas of this early tram.
One of the early trains between Vienna and Pressburg (now Bratislava). No information was given on how long the trip took, though.
A smattering of references to the role women played during the wars, and how they were “unceremoniously” dumped from the workforce once the men returned.
Vienna, Hitler’s “Pearl of the Reich.” This was to be the showpiece city at the Eastern Front. A corresponding exhibit at the Architecture Museum here in Vienna showcases Nazi plans for public transportation, ones that were ultimately used in designing Vienna’s current network.
A few photos showed the devastation to the city, and its public transportation system, at the end of WWII.
The public bus to AIS in the 1960’s, and today.

The second half of the 1960’s saw exponential growth in Vienna’s underground system. This station at Karlsplatz, where three separate underground lines converge, was the largest construction project in Europe at the time.
To wrap up our visit, the U-Bahn simulator. Fun for all ages!
