Battery Trains Ordered For Hermann-Hesse-Bahn

The title of this post, is the same as that, of this article on Railway Gazette.

This article is yet another endorsement of battery-electric trains.

There is more about the history of the Hermann-Hesse-Bahn in Wikipedia entry for the Black Forest Railway.

Could the Germans be using a battery-electric railway to bring in the tourists?

  1. Actually it’s to bring in the commuters and schoolchildren. The last section of the route that is part of Stuttgart’s S Bahn network closed 37 years ago and by opening it up again it’ll serve an estimated 2800 people a day who want to get into Stuttgart. There are about a dozen short sections of track that the State Railway business SWEG is considering. seriously for reopening.
    The RS1 DMUs they will replace are barely more than 20 years old.
