All:

Quick question regarding Austiran and Austria-Hungarian stations.

Did the small typical Austrian stations on the Narrow Gauge lines have restroom/toilet blocks outside of the station? I have seen little evidence of this, in fact, the only one I can remember is the one at the former Austrian station where Luka lived in the film "Zivot je cudo".

Thanks-

I would think either Bruce or Andy MzB would know this.
In the meantime, not sure if this will help, but there is a directory in Railfan-Europe.net that covers pics of various Austrian stations:

Possibly something in there might be of use?

Hmmm ... toilets are not my specialist subject, but the main stations (standard and narrow gauge) tend to have toilets as part of the main building, whilst smaller halts have no toilets at all.

The toilets on a lot of the older Austrian narrow gauge coaches have no flushing facility. There is a large jug of water next to the toilet for swilling down the pan ... the guard checks occasionally and fills the jugs at the next large station.

Thanks Andy and Clive. I wondered about a toilet block for my station, but I guess I will "pass" on this.

Sidebar, I did find a nice halt at this site, under 1989:

That's a damn good site Garrett. Never seen that before. The Bregenzerwaldbahn was notorius for landslides which was the reason it closed completely in 1980. Pic #9 shows a 2095 that has plunged into the Bregenzerache ... This (I believe) is 2095.05 (circa 1962) that was all but written off in the accident, but as the 2095's were still being built at the time, it re-emerged as practically a new loco.

Found something of interest.

Here are some drawings/diagrams. Site is Czech, but was part of the A-H empire at one time... Smile

I've seen a train movie of last 4 decades and it portrait the entire Europe routes. Most of them have restroom built in narrow gauge, considering the fact that around 90% of them are narrow.
