Description

The Pöstlingbergbahn is a tramway in Linz/Austria - the steepest adhesion railway in the world. 
In 2009, the gauge had been changed from 1000 to 900 mm - this allowed to extend the line to the main square. 
At Mühlkreisbahnhof station, there is also an admission-free Pöstlingbergbahn museum.
