The Metal Valley Train – connecting regions

The Metal Valley is a unique area in central Upper Styria and combines liveable living space with sport, culture, education and industry. As a brand ambassador on the railway, Innofreight carries the versatility of the region throughout Europe.

We at Innofreight are grateful to work and live in this region and to continue to grow in this inspiring economic environment. Thousands of people see our trains every day, which is why we want to showcase our region throughout Europe with the Metal Valley Train. The train is intended to present the advantages of our living space wherever it goes. The three major cities, Leoben, Kapfenberg and Bruck an der Mur, the largest companies and institutions, as well as the most beautiful places, can be found on the Metal Valley Train. In this way, we want to provide a strong impulse for the further development of our region and simply say ‘THANK YOU’.

At the project presentation on 4 June 2024, many of our partners were on site at the event to get a first-hand impression of the 240-metre-long brand ambassador. The train consists of WoodTainer XXL trains that have been refurbished and serviced and are now back in woodchip traffic.
