Description of obverse and reverse
Obverse: The railjet speeding out of a low tunnel.
Reverse: shows a freight yard with heavily loaded cars, tanks and containers. An electric shunting locomotive is to be seen in the foreground. This design reminds us of another important policy for future development – the shifting of goods transport from the roads on to the rails. For a landlocked country like Austria with massive transit traffic, this measure is of vital importance to its environment and to the quality of life for its citizens.
