This is a freight ring round the south side of Nürnberg.  It is sometimes used during the spring and sumer by special trips behind the replica steam locomotive ''Adler''.  There is very limited capacity, because the trains comprise a small number of replicas of carriages used on the original 1835 railway between Nürnberg and Fürth.  Advance reservation is essential, because trips are sold out well in advance.  For more information, including details of further trips when available, see the [http://www.dbmuseum.de DB Museum] website.  Although there were regular trips in 2016, there do not appear to have been any in 2017 or 2018.

The lines to Ingolstadt from Augsburg and from Donauwörth join at Seehof Bbf and then split into two independent single tracks forming a flying junction with the main line from München. Crossovers south of Ingolstadt Hbf mean that all platforms are accessible from both routes, but the branch trains do not normally cross the main line on the flat. Trains to platforms 5, 6 and 7, on the east side of Ingolstadt Hbf use the flyover, but those to platforms 1, 2 and 2a on the west side do not. The hourly trains to and from Augsburg mostly use platforms 1, 2 and 2a, and the direct spur from Seehof Bbf. Trains to and from Donauwörth mostly run via the flyover and use platforms 5, 6 and 7.

The normal route for trains between Buchloe and München Hbf is by a flyover over the Starnberg line ''S-Bahn'' tracks (''S8'') west of Pasing, through platforms 1 to 3 there and thence to the north side platforms at Hauptbahnhof via the Fernbahn line from Starnberg (line 5504). The following ''EC'' trains between München and Zürich via Lindau are booked to use an alternative route.  From Abzw. Pasing West this dives under the Augsburg line, passes north of Pasing station and joins the Ingolstadt main line at Abzw München Kanal.

The [http://www.bayerisches-eisenbahnmuseum.de Bayerisches Eisenbahnmuseum] usually runs ''Nikolausfahrten rund um München'' on the first two weekends in December.  These depart from München Ost and normally operate via the ''Nordring''; in past years they have usually been routed via München-Moosach.  Dates of operation in 2018 are 1, 2, 8 and 9 December, with departures from München Ost about 10:00, 11:30, 13:30 and 15:00. However on at least some of these dates in 2018, because of engineering work, the trains have run via Moosach and the south side of München-Nord Rbf, then back to München Ost via Allach and the flyover to Laim Rbf, hence not using the ''Nordring'' east of Moosach at all.

Introduction

This list is based on the timetable dated from 15 December 2019 to 12 December 2020, unless otherwise stated. Standard abbreviations are explained in General Information. Map references relate to the 2017 issue of the Schweers+Wall Eisenbahnatlas Deutschland.

Obscure services: Lines with regular use

Gemünden (Main) (Wernfeld) – Waigolshausen

[800, 810] (78C4-79B4) DE20/650

This line, which is about 35 km long, provides a more direct route between Gemünden (Main) and Schweinfurt than the main line via Würzburg or the branch lines via Bad Kissingen.

SSuO RE4647 Frankfurt am Main Hbf – 10:22 Gemünden (Main) – Bamberg
SSuO RE4649 Frankfurt am Main Hbf – 16:22 Gemünden (Main) – Bamberg

SSuO RE4648 Bamberg – 19:01 Schweinfurt Hbf – Frankfurt am Main Hbf

See route DE20/683, Bamberg avoiding line, for details of trains diverted via this route 18 February to 9 March and 14 to 20 March 2020.

Erfurt (Abzw Esbacher See) - Dörfles-Esbach and Creidlitz - Breitengüßbach (Abzw Weißenbrunn am Forst)

[820] (80B2) DE20/651

These two connections off the Erfurt to Breitengüßbach Schnellfahrstrecke are used by ICE trains calling at Coburg.

SuX ICE501 Berlin-Gesundbrunnen - 06:31 Erfurt Hbf - München Hbf
ICE93 Berlin-Gesundbrunnen - 11:54 Erfurt Hbf - Wien Hbf
D ICE1707 Berlin-Gesundbrunnen - 15:54 Erfurt Hbf - München Hbf
ICE1617 Berlin-Gesundbrunnen - 21:31 Erfurt Hbf - München Hbf
SSuX ICE1604 Nürnberg Hbf - 06:22 Bamberg - Hamburg-Altona
D ICE1706 München Hbf - 10:36 Nürnberg Hbf - Berlin-Gesundbrunnen
ICE92 Wien Hbf - 14:37 Nürnberg Hbf - Berlin-Gesundbrunnen
ICE1700 München Hbf - 21:43 Bamberg - Berlin-Gesundbrunnen

The south connection from Abzw Weißenbrunn am Forst is also used by RE trains between Nürnberg and Sonneberg which are non-stop between Bamberg and Creidlitz or Coburg. These run every two hours.

Trebgast (Neuenmarkt-Wirsberg Süd) – Marktschorgast (Neuenmarkt-Wirsberg Ost) (Schlömener Kurve)

[860] (81B3) DE20/652

This south to north curve, opened in 2001, connects the Bayreuth and Hof lines, avoiding Neuenmarkt-Wirsberg. It is used by RE trains between Nürnberg and Hof via Bayreuth. These mostly run every two hours.

Hersbruck (rechts Pegnitz) – Pommelsbrunn

[870] (90A3) DE20/653

This spur links the lines leading east from Nürnberg on each bank of the Pegnitz. It is used by trains between Nürnberg Hbf and Neukirchen (b Sulzbach-Rosenberg) that call at Hersbruck (rechts Pegnitz). These comprise hourly RE services between Nürnberg and Schwandorf or Neustadt (Waldnaab).

Nürnberg Hbf (Nürnberg-Dutzendteich) - Nürnberg-Eibach (via Nürnberg Rangierbahnhof)

[910] (162B4-162C3) DE20/654

This route via the eastern side of the Nürnberg ring line is used by the following trains in order to avoid reversal at Nürnberg Hbf.

NJ421 Düsseldorf Hbf - 03:42 Nürnberg Hbf - Innsbruck Hbf
NJ420 Innsbruck Hbf - 22:52 München Hbf - Düsseldorf Hbf

Ingolstadt Hbf – Weichering and Schrobenhausen (Seehof Bbf)

[983,993] (97D4) DE20/655

The lines to Ingolstadt from Augsburg and from Donauwörth join at Seehof Bbf and then split into two independent single tracks forming a flying junction with the main line from München. Crossovers south of Ingolstadt Hbf mean that all platforms are accessible from both routes, but the branch trains do not normally cross the main line on the flat. Trains to platforms 5, 6 and 7, on the east side of Ingolstadt Hbf use the flyover, but those to platforms 1, 2 and 2a on the west side do not. The hourly trains to and from Augsburg use platform 1 or occasionally 2, and the direct spur from Seehof Bbf. Trains to and from Donauwörth mostly run via the flyover and use platforms 5, 6 and 7.

Augsburg-Oberhausen – Neusäß (Augsburg-Hirblinger Straße)

[980] (163C3) DE20/656

There are two routes into Augsburg from Ulm, that from the east side of (and flying over) the Donauwörth line being used by most trains. The other, from the west side of the Donauwörth line, is used by trains between the Ulm line and platforms 7, 8 or 9 at Augsburg Hbf.

Major improvement work is taking place at Augsburg Hbf and during this period the platforms used by trains are liable to alteration.

Leienfelsstrasse (Abzw Pasing West) – München Hbf (Abzw München Kanal) (via Abzw Pasing Nord and the Abstellbahn line)

[970] (164B3-164D3) DE20/657

The normal route for trains between Buchloe and München Hbf is by a flyover over the Starnberg line S-Bahn tracks (S8) west of Pasing, through platforms 1 to 3 there and thence to the north side platforms at Hauptbahnhof via the Fernbahn line from Starnberg (line 5504). The EC trains between München and Zürich via Lindau are booked to use an alternative route. From Abzw Pasing West this dives under the Augsburg line, passes north of Pasing station and joins the Ingolstadt main line at Abzw München Kanal.

The following train is scheduled to use this route from München-Pasing Nord to Abzw München Kanal:

SO ICE1207 Kassel-Wilhelmshöhe - 14:11/14:14 Augsburg Hbf - Innsbruck Hbf

München-Obermenzing – München Ost (München Süd) (via Laim Rbf)

[900, 950, 951, 990] (164C3-165A4) DE20/658

This route is used by trains between the Ingolstadt line and München Ost if not calling at München Hbf.

Urlaubs Express trains via München Ost may use this route, but not if scheduled to call at Augsburg Hbf; see Other Services Page.

München-Pasing – München Ost (München Süd) (via Laim Rbf)

[950, 951, 980] (164D3-165A4) DE20/659

This route is one of two routes available for trains between München-Pasing and München Ost if not calling at München Hbf. It runs north of the main Augsburg line from München-Pasing via Laim Rbf and then under the main lines from München Hbf.

Urlaubs Express trains via München Ost may use this route; see Other Services Page.

München-Pasing (Abzw Landsberger Straße) – München Ost (München Süd) (via München Landsberger Straße

[950, 951, 980] (164D3-165A4) DE20/660

This is the alternative route between München-Pasing and München Ost if not calling at München Hbf. It diverges south from the Augsburg main line at Landsberger Straße and is common with route DE20/659 from Bft Friedenheimer Brücke.

IC2083 Hamburg-Altona - 13:59 München-Pasing - Berchtesgaden Hbf
D1 EC115 Münster (Westf) Hbf - 13:49 Augsburg Hbf - Klagenfurt Hbf
IC2082 Berchtesgaden Hbf - 11:17 München Ost - Hamburg-Altona
D1 EC114 Klagenfurt Hbf - 13:36 München Ost - Dortmund Hbf

D1: 11 April to 31 October 2020 (On other days the train reverses at München Hbf)

Urlaubs Express trains via München Ost may use this route; see Other Services Page.

München-Pasing – München-Harras

[999.7] (164B3-165A4) DE20/661

This single track runs south of the main lines and the southern ring line from München-Pasing to Heimeranplatz and then joins the Holzkirchen line. It is used by S20 trains at peak times Mondays to Fridays.

München-Moosach – München-Johanneskirchen (via München-Freimann)

(164D2-165C2) DE20/662

The Bayerisches Eisenbahnmuseum usually runs Nikolausfahrten rund um München on the first two weekends in December. These depart from München Ost and operate via the Nordring; in past years they have usually been routed via München-Moosach. Departures from München Ost in 2019 were at 10:00, 11:30, 13:30 and 15:00. These trains also use the route between München Süd and München-Neulustheim via Laim Rbf and the connection between the S-Bahn and Mühldorf lines at Riedenburgerstrasse.

Rosenheim avoiding line: Bad Endorf (Abzw Rosenheim Ost) – Pfraundorf (Inn) (Abzw Rosenheim Süd)

[ÖBB 300] (116C1-116C2) DE20/663

This east to south curve linking the Salzburg and Wörgl lines provides a through route between Salzburg and Kufstein for Austrian Korridorzüge, which run non-stop through Germany. They are not included in the DB Kursbuch, but are those shown in the ÖBB Fahrplanbilder (table 300) calling at both Kufstein and Salzburg Hbf.

Rosenheim – Rohrdorf (Oberbay)

(116C1-116C2) DE20/664

In recent years a train marketed as the "Wiesn-Express" has run on the 7.1 km freight branch from Rosenheim to Rohrdorf (Oberbay) for the Rosenheim Autumn Festival in late August and early September.

However there was no service in 2019, because the Wiesn Express now has to obtain its own safety certificate and the cost of this is too great for such a short operating season. It is unlikely that trains will operate in 2020.

Prien Bahnhof – Stock Hafen

(Chiemsee-Schifffahrt Ludwig Feßler) (116D1) DE20/665

Trains operate over this line during the spring and summer, in connection with cruises on the Chiemsee. Trains run hourly on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from May until September. For further information see www.chiemsee-schifffahrt.de.

Obscure services: Lines used on an occasional basis for engineering work diversions

Langenprozelten - Gemünden Zollberg - Rieneck - Rieneck Sinnberg - Burgsinn Bbf - Fulda

[615, 800, 801] (78C3) DE20/681

This route comprises a west to north curve linking the Aschaffenburg and Flieden lines, avoiding the need to reverse at Gemünden (Main), and a connection from the old main line to the Schnellfahrstrecke towards Fulda at Burgsinn. It is used occasionally for diversions when the line between Hanau and Flieden is blocked. ICE trains were diverted via this route between 29 April and 1 May 2017, the services concerned having an extended journey time between Fulda and Hanau.

Burgsinn - Burgsinn Bbf - Würzburg

[800.1] (78C3) DE20/682

This route comprises a connection between Burgsinn, on the old main line, and the Schnellfahrstrecke towards Würzburg. It was used by IC and ICE trains between Hanau and Würzburg on several occasions in 2017 and early 2018. Trains concerned had an extended journey time and did not stop at Aschaffenburg.

Bamberg avoiding line: Oberhaid (Höflein) - Hallstadt (b Bamberg)

[810, 820] (80B4) DE20/683

This west to north curve enables trains to run between the Schweinfurt and Saalfeld lines without reversing at Bamberg Hbf. Some ICE trains between Erfurt and Frankfurt am Main are diverted via this route, mostly 18 February to 9 March and 14 to 20 March 2020, with journey times extended by at least 40 minutes.

Departure times from Frankfurt am Main Hbf may vary by a few minutes on certain dates. Some of these trains are overtaken by others following the usual route via Eisenach and Fulda, so may not show on journey planners.

These trains also use route DE20/650, the direct line between Gemünden (Main) and Waigolshausen.

Nürnberg-Eibach - Fürth (Bay) Hbf (via Nürnberg Großmarkt)

[910] (162B4-162B3) DE20/684

This route via the western side of the Nürnberg ring line may be used by IC/ICE trains between Augsburg and Würzburg during work on the line via Ansbach and this happened on several weekends in autumn 2017. Bus replacement of local trains may indicate this. This route may also be used by trains between the Treuchtlingen and Bamberg lines, in event of work in the Nürnberg area, but that is much less usual.

Feucht (Nürnberg-Reichswald) - Fürth (Bay) Hbf (via Nürnberg Rangierbahnhof)

[880] (162D4-162B3) DE20/685

This route via the full length of the Nürnberg ring line can be used by trains between Fürth and Regensburg in order to avoid Nürnberg Hbf. ICE and IC trains ran this way in August 2017, but that was most unusual. Any such diversion is indicated by the usual stop at Nürnberg Hbf being omitted.

Olching – München-Johanneskirchen (via München-Freimann)
