The Zillertal Railway runs from Jenbach, through the Zillertal to Mayrhofen.  It is a private narrow-gauge (760 mm) railway, used today primarily for local transportation, tourism purposes and lumber haulage.

Aside from a fleet of modern diesel locomotives, the Zillertal Railway also boasts many steam locomotives which are used to pull excursion trains for yet another fun-filled excursion opportunity for visitors.

In Jenbach, the railway meets the Westbahn line, which runs as a standard-gauge system between Vienna, Linz, Salzburg, Innsbruck and Bregenz. Also in Jenbach, it connects with the Achenseebahn, a meter-gauge cog railway. Which makes Jenbach the only place in Austria where three different gauge widths come together.
