More station upgrades

Following on from the repaint and new station name boards at Holzapfel, some further work at Birkenhof has seen new posters on the walls. The original ones lasted about a fortnight before they faded away, so new posters on self adhesive vinyl have been made and applied. So far, these seem to be lasting much better. The very observant may also notice that there is now a water fountain on the front of the station, inspired by Mittersil station on the Pinzgau line, and the station staff have left a pushbike against the wall.

Meanwhile, at Dottendorf, the station has also received new a name board and new timetables. The old name board from the station's previous incarnation on the old H&DLR (see main website for details) has been removed and all the stations on the line now sport new name boards in a reasonably consistent Austrian style.
