REX

REX is the regional train service provided by Austria's national rail operator, OBB.

They're the stopping train services outside of the big cities and tend to be found on the secondary routes and the branch lines operated by OBB.

Though some faster, long distance commuter routes to/from Wien/Vienna have REX trains - including the route between Wien/Vienna and Bratislava.

The trains used for REX services come in many shapes and sizes, some have loco hauled coaches while many trains are used on these service are relatively new.

The more modern trains, incuding those we have captured images of, are also used for the the local (S-Bahn) services in the major cities.

If you want to take a bike or a wheelchair on a REX train service it's worth confirming whether it's possible, before heading to the station.

A distinguishing feature of REX train services, irrespective of the actual train used, is that they tend to be 2nd class only.

So if you're considering exploring Austria's wonderful railways with a rail pass -  then the balance tips against 1st class passes if you will be mainly taking REX trains.
