Warsaw-Vienna Railway (I)
Other city spellings: Varsovie, Warschau, Warszawy
Concession granted in 1839. This was the second railway to obtain the Tsar’s approval. It was the first in Europe to have a dividend (4%) with a Government guarantee. Work started in 1839 but ceased in 1842, as the company was unable to raise enough capital. The Imperial Treasury took over the line and it was eventually opened in 1848.
