You're entitled to it. After all, you can't help it if you miss your connection. It's one of the basic passenger rights imposed under EU law.

However, going to a Travel Center will assure you will get new reservations (if still possible) and tickets, so it will save the train crew hassle on board.

You are usually instructed to take care of this at the information desk ("Service Point", in Neo-German), They usually check whether your train was actually delayed (if it is not obvious by the crowds at their desk), then stamp your ticket accordingly.

Actually the conductor on the delayed train will mention the delay on the back of the ticket if so asked, as he has to do that. That's all you need to claim your entitlement for other transportation.

Deutsche Bahn placed an order for 51 new Bombardier Talent 2 for 200 millions Euro.

These trains will be used around the city of Leipzig where the construction of the City-Tunnel (for S-Bahn and regional trains) is almost completed.

Bombardier Talent 2 ("Hamsterbacke" = "Hamster cheek")

What´s the problem with these Talent 2 trains? I admit I´m not that good informed about railway issues.

I just googled for a nice picture of this train. I´m deeply sorry that the number of cars isn´t correct.

It's not just Lufthansa, several airlines have code share agreements with Deutsche Bahn like American Airlines, Qantas & China Airlines.

The DB also has deals with many airline including TUIfly (the operator of these 2 planes) with the Rail&Fly ticket. This ticket takes air passengers from the selected airlines to and from the airport (all German airports and even Basel and Amsterdam) from any railway station in Germany for €29.

"Zug zum Flug" (the train to the flight) is the slogan for this ticket, so the airplane ads are promoting this Rail&Fly ticket.

There are different kinds of cooperation.
A huge number of Airlines take part in Rail&Fly.
Then there's the codeshare connections of Qantas, American, China Airlines and some others on ICE trains from FRA to major German cities.
And additionally there's the AIRail service, a cooperation of DB and Lufthansa between FRA and Köln as well as Stuttgart. Those trains, where some seats are blocked for LH passengers, even have an LH code, and the served stations Köln, Siegburg and Stuttgart have their own IATA-Codes as the trains are to be booked like ordinary flights. AIRail even resulted in the cancellation of all flights between FRA and CGN, on FRA-STR there are only four daily flights left.

Horrible sectors with single-line unprotected tracks, ungated crossing etc. S-Bahn should never be authorized to run on ungated crossings or not to be isolated so that pedestrians don't cross tracks outside designated crossings.
