Q1:
Anyone can point me to such a standard / guide?
In particular those used by Wincor Nixdorf or IBM or NCR (anyone of them).

Q2:
Are these ATMs running on custom Linux or custom Windows or proprietary OS mostly?

Europol  has a general hardening guide for all ATM'S , check the page 7 of this document for what to do (its a 10 page document) :

Anti skimming solutions for ATM :

http://ec.europa.eu/internal_market/fpeg/docs/annex2_askimmingdevices.pdf

This is gold : the atmia association has a file on "ATM Software Security Best Practices Guide Version 3"  :
https://www.atmia.com/files/Best%20Practices/ATMIA%20Best%20Practices%20v3.pdf

their website has a lot of usefull whitepapers as well

For your second question :

Most of the old text based ATM's used IBM's OS/2, then some migrated to nt/XP after then end of service of xp some updated to 7 , others to linux , others kept xp .

You can read more on that and the statistics for some users at the atmia association website

+ you need to search for manuals of specific models , this is too general to link , + i think you would need to register on the web sites of the manufacturers of the atm

So there are physical hardening parameters that are machine / hardware specific as mentions

Otherwise it is the OS - yes still Windows XP

So check some of the standards rods like NIST

http://csrc.nist.gov/itsec/SP800-68r1.pdf
And older link from infosec
