Ruhestand Weg is a truncated branch terminus in Austria, as is the present case; numerous branch lines have been closed fully or partially. In this particular case the line has been saved by the fact that there are a couple of large employers within the area and the rail provides a cheaper and more efficient way of their goods getting to market.
The station is linked to rest of the OBB to the west of Vienna and also is a junction of a dual gauge line, heading up to Bad Lockerung,
The station has a small goods shed and the old steam shed which is still in use for the diesels between duties.
