This west to north curve links the line from Koblenz via Bingen with the Kaiserbrücke over the Rhein.  It may be used by trains to Hochheim (Main) or Mainz-Bischofsheim if not calling at Mainz Hbf. Various types of older carriages are not permitted through the tunnels at Mainz, so any trains including such vehicles are likely to be diverted this way. This should not affect regular passenger trains operating through Mainz; excursions and other special trains are more likely to use this route.

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

Mainz-Mombach - Mainz Abzw Kaiserbrücke West

(151B2) DE20/401

This west to north curve links the line from Koblenz via Bingen with the Kaiserbrücke over the Rhein. It may be used by trains to Hochheim (Main) or Mainz-Bischofsheim if not calling at Mainz Hbf. Various types of older carriages are not permitted through the tunnels at Mainz, so any trains including such vehicles are likely to be diverted this way. This should not affect regular passenger trains operating through Mainz; excursions and other special trains are more likely to use this route.

The following train is the rear portion of a service that divides at Budenheim.

D1 SSuX RB29681 Bad Kreuznach - 07:14 Budenheim - Wiesbaden Hbf

D1: 15 June to 11 December 2020

Ludwigshafen (Rhein) Hbf – Ludwigshafen BASF Nord

[670.1] (159A2-158D1) DE20/402

Various trains to and from Ludwigshafen extend into the BASF chemical works, and are shown in table 670.1 in the DB Kursbuch. Most trains run into the works early in the morning and out late in the afternoon, Mondays to Fridays. There are very few trains on Saturdays and Sundays.

Use of the trains is officially restricted to those with works passes. Smoking and photography are strictly forbidden within the works.

Ludwigshafen west curve: Ludwigshafen-Oggersheim (Überleitung Nord) – Ludwigshafen-Mundenheim

[660,665.3-4] (158D2) DE20/403

This pair of curves, via the low level west side platforms at Ludwigshafen (Rhein) Hbf, is used by through trains between the Worms and Schifferstadt lines. There is an RE service between Mainz and Karlsruhe via Germersheim every two hours for most of the day. Northbound trains run via platform 6 and the diveunder route to the Worms line, whereas southbound trains run via the direct curve to platforms 8 or 9.

Schifferstadt avoiding line: Limburgerhof (Limburgerhof Abzw.) – Böhl-Iggelheim (Böhl-Iggelheim Abzw.)

[670] (158D3-158C4) DE20/404

This line is used by trains between Mannheim/Ludwigshafen and Neustadt (Weinstraße)/Kaiserslautern not calling at Schifferstadt.

Enkenbach – Kaiserslautern Hbf (via Eselsfürth)

[672] (155C4-155D3) DE20/405

This line is used by those trains between Enkenbach and Kaiserslautern Hbf which are not booked to call at Hochspeyer, which is most of them. The service between Hochspeyer and Enkenbach is quite sparse.

Hochspeyer curve: Frankenstein (Pfalz) (Hochspeyer Ost) – Enkenbach (Hochspeyer Nord)

[670, 672.2] (155D4) DE19/406

This east to north curve links the Neustadt (Weinstraße) and Bingen (Rhein) lines east of Hochspeyer.

D2 SuO RE81493 Koblenz Hbf – 11:06 Rockenhausen – Wissembourg
D2 SuO RE4298 Koblenz Hbf – 19:23 Enkenbach – Karlsruhe Hbf
D2 SuO RE4299 Karlsruhe Hbf – 08:53 Neustadt (Weinstraße) Hbf – Koblenz Hbf

D2: 1 May to 25 October 2020.

Trier Hbf - Ehrang Ort

[690] (155D1) DE20/407

There are two routes between Trier Hbf and the Moselstrecke to Koblenz. The main line runs via Ehrang Bahnhof, but there is also a single line that runs on the far (east) side of the marshalling yard at Ehrang. The eastern route is sometimes used by RE trains from Trier, non-stop to Schweich.

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

Koblenz-Ehrenbreitstein (Pfaffendorf) - Niederlahnstein

(150D2) DE20/431

If trains are diverted via the Rechte Rheinstrecke they normally cross back to the left bank to call at Koblenz Hbf. Exceptionally, they may use this route and not call at Koblenz. Diverted trains can be readily identified because they stop at Bonn-Beuel and Neuwied instead of Bonn Hbf and Koblenz Hbf.

Trains EC6,7,8 and 9 between Switzerland and Hamburg were due to be diverted over this route over the Easter weekend between 10 and 13 April 2020, but this has now been cancelled.

Koblenz-Moselweiß (Koblenz Mosel Gbf) - Koblenz-Lützel

[470,690] (150C2) DE20/432

This west to north curve links the Moselstrecke from Trier to the Linke Rheinstrecke via Bonn Hbf, avoiding Koblenz Hbf. It is used occasionally in March and April by the through trains between Luxembourg and Düsseldorf Hbf, which normally reverse in Koblenz Hbf.

D3 RE5107/IC5107 Luxembourg – 08:22 Kobern-Gondorf – Düsseldorf Hbf
D3 IC5106/RE5106 Düsseldorf Hbf – 15:12 Koblenz-Lützel – Luxembourg

D3: 13-15, 19-22, 28-30 March; 6-10 April

On 28 and 29 March the trains start/terminate at Wittlich, and on 6-10 April they start/terminate at Wasserbillig, instead of Luxembourg.
