A bit more than that. There is a Thalys train every two hours, plus four ICE
trains per day. That border crossing is not high-speed, and tracks are
shared with a local cross-border service too, operated with belgian EMUs.
The change of power supply is done in the station Aachen while the trains
stop for passenger service.

I think the fastest international high speed link at the moment is HSL-Zuid/4 between Belgium and Netherlands, right? I mean: the border where trains can cross at the highest speed on commercial operations.

That is, less than 2-hourly takt of ICE. Are under-2h-takt ICE services shown on the map?

But maybe Deutsch Bahn intends to increase that to a train every two hours. That would be a good thing in my opinion.

There was no reference to a map in your comment.

Regulator rejects Nuremberg S-Bahn award
Wednesday, April 29, 2015



THE status of National Express as preferred bidder for two contracts to operate the Nuremberg S-Bahn network appears to be in doubt after Southern Bavaria's procuremnt office (VBS) ruled on April 27 that the Bavarian Railway Authority (BEG) must exclude the company from the tendering process

The VBS argues that National Express failed to provide BEG with all necessary documentation in its bid for the two 12-year contracts, which start in December 2018. BEG announced in February that it had selected National Express as preferred bidder in a move which was seen as a blow to German Rail (DB) and its subsidiary DB Regio, which currently operates the five-line network

Hi, I've downloaded this picture for my desktop and I guess it's from a German station. Any idea which is?

I guess it's not a German station, For me it's Milano Centrale!

I think it's from an Italian station, not a German one. Germany has higher platforms, for example, and the train on the left has a color scheme that makes me think it's an Italian IC.

Thank you. I'll ask somewhere else. I thought since it looked really tidy and neat that it was Germany

Is anyone here familiar with Kassel, even if it means just passing by the freight yard? I ask because I'm wondering if hump shunting is still carried out there so has anyone seen evidence that it is?

There isnt a direct connection between the rail tracks coming from east Germany to the rail tracks coming from the Ruhrgebiet.

Quote:
Der „weitere Bedarf“ des Bundesverkehrswegeplans sieht im südlichen Teil der Hannöverschen Südbahn eine Verbindungsstrecke von Speele nach Mönchehof an der Bahnstrecke Kassel–Warburg vor, um Güterzügen aus und nach Hann. Münden vom und zum Ruhrgebiet den Fahrtrichtungswechsel in Kassel zu ersparen. Das Projekt ist umstritten, der Verkehrsclub Deutschland und Pro Bahn fordern stattdessen den Ausbau der über Ottbergen führenden, vom Norden der Hannöverschen Südbahn nach Westen abzweigenden (Solling- und Eggebahn). Für den Güterverkehr wird schon jetzt die Eichenberger Kurve teilweise genutzt um ohne Kopfmachen auf der Hannöverschen Südbahn nach Norden, ab Hannover-Linden über die Bahnstrecke Hannover–Altenbeken, ab Hameln auf der Bahnstrecke Elze–Löhne und ab Löhne auf der Bahnstrecke Hamm–Minden ins Ruhrgebiet zu fahren.
