Remarks & Notes 
In the last rays of the mountain Sun, ÖBB 1216 025, with its special livery indicating its historical achievement (prior to delivery, Siemens used it for test runs to attain the current world speed record for locomotives, 357 km/h = 222 mph, on September 2, 2006) pushes a Railjet set on the RJ 132 "Gondoliere" service from Villach to Vienna. This location, overlooking Klamm and its castle along the Semmeringbahn line in Austria, is called "Blauer Blick" (Blue View), and was popular with photographers & painters in the steam era. It lies between Blauer Einschnitt (Blue Cutting; outside the picture to the right) and the short Gamperl Tunnel (left); you also have a sneak peek at Gamperlgraben Viaduct because the forest above the tunnel was cleared last year.
