Prototype Description: The Austrian Class 1116 (ES 64 U) is a Siemens locomotive built from 1999 to 2006. The ES 64 U runs in seven European countries and is nicknamed the "Taurus" locomotive; a name originally given to the Austrian Class 1016. The ES 64 U is used as both a passenger and freight locomotive. It has an 8600 horsepower rating and reaches a maximum speed of 140 MPH (230 KPH). In September of 2006 an Austrian Taurus set the world speed record for a locomotive when it reached a speed of 222 MPH (357 KPH) near Nurnberg.

Road Name History:
The Austrian Federal Railways (German: Österreichische Bundesbahnen or ÖBB, formerly the Bundesbahn Österreich or BBÖ) is the national railway system of Austria, and the administrator of Liechtenstein's railways. The ÖBB group is owned entirely by the Republic of Austria and is divided into several separate businesses that manage the infrastructure and operate passenger and freight services.

The Austrian Federal Railways has had two discrete periods of existence. It was first formed in 1923, using the Bundesbahn Österreich name, as a successor to the Imperial Royal Austrian State Railways (kkStB), but was incorporated into the Deutsche Reichsbahn during the 1938-1945 Anschluss. It was reformed in 1947, using the slightly different Österreichische Bundesbahnen name, and remains in existence in this form.

Major changes currently being made to the Austrian railway network are the construction of the Wien Hauptbahnhof (Vienna main station), the Koralm Railway, the Semmering Base Tunnel and the Brenner Base Tunnel connection with Italy.
