Description of obverse and reverse The obverse shows an electric engine model 1189 (also a "Crocodile") emerging from the western exit of the Arlberg tunnel. The reverse has one of the loveliest alpine railway scenes for its design: the spectacular Trisanna Bridge on the Arlberg line with Wiesburg Castle and the mountains towering behind. A passenger train pulled by the electric engine model 1100 is crossing the 231 meter long bridge, which at its opening in 1884 ranked as the then longest arched steel railway bridge in the world.
