The new Wien Hauptbahnhof (central station) opened in December 2014 and is now almost operating at full capacity; trains from a handful of destinations still terminate at other stations until all tracks are connected by summer 2015. Check your timetable carefully to check where to embark. Among many new connections are the ICE high speed trains from Linz via Vienna's new Hauptbahnhof station to Vienna airport, every two hours or so; these can also be used to get to and from the airport in under 20 minutes. Train tickets can be bought at all stations, but are best booked in advance on the bilingual ÖBB website, where significant reductions are available if you book well in advance.
