After just 14 months of construction - finishing on schedule and on budget - LOCMASTA (Locomotive Maintenance Station) festively opened its doors in the presence of industry celebrities and a specially designed locomotive dedicated to the location.
The three joint venture partners ÖBB Train Tech, LTE and ELL (European Locomotive Leasing) were just as pleased as they were optimistic about their project, the maintenance hall, which is intended for quick servicing: Sandra Gott-Karlbauer, Managing Director of ÖBB Train Tech, therefore confirms: "With our fast services provided here in Gramatneusiedl, we enable our customers to continue their journeys quickly." Christoph Katzensteiner, ELL, agrees and adds: "The selected strategic location at the intersection of important European corridors will be used intensively." Andreas Mandl, LTE - initiator of the project - is happy about the location of “his engine shed”, as he lovingly called the workshop from the very first idea.
