The line between Wien-Meidling and Hütteldorf was closed but the route was expected to be reopened by Tuesday afternoon.
ÖBB spokesman Michael Brown said that it was "the first copper theft in months."
Five trains had to be cancelled and passengers were asked to travel by metro or bus. The theft was discovered around 10:20am.
