If you are on a through ticket, they should accommodate you on the next train if the incoming IC from Salzburg is late in arriving.

However, I checked your OBB IC departing 08:12 arrives at Villach on platform 3, and the next OBB IC departing Villach at 10:50 leaves from platform 4DE, that should not be a problem in my opinion.

Here is the layout of the station with Track numbers

Thank you very much

If worst case happened and the incoming from Slazburg was late into Villach and other train did not wait , do you know if another Train from Villach would get us into Venice at a reasonable hour that same day .

Really thankful for your advice

unfortunately there is no other train it seems. You may want to email OEBB and ask them if you can join the OEBB Intercity bus 835, leaving from the bus stop across the road at 12:58. This bus is a reserved seating bus, so it may or may not have seats available (it stops at Venice Mestre, and terminates at Venice Tronchetto carpark, near Piazzale Roma).

There are 4 departures everyday, both ways.

You are correct, I could not find it either. My guess is it would be on another section of that platform 4. Some of these smaller stations, they may have trains departing from different areas along the length of that platform at different times.
