In a Limited Stop Train on the Branch Line
Once there was a quite different, contemplative travel experience without constant worries about failed connections, with working restrooms, and with windows that could be opened. We're talking about the "Heckeneilzugen" / "Backwoods Limited Stop Passenger Trains" that enabled connections free of transfers for many years via branch lines between regions not on the main lines and the large metropolitan areas. On the branch lines, they stood out with comparatively comfortable cars as exotic bright spots among the usual rail busses and rebuild cars. These trains formed the backbone of passenger service in the country in the northern part of Germany into the Eighties and occasionally they even warranted through cars.
