Zurich - Stuttgart

Zurich Hauptbahnhof, one of my favorite train stations.

It is 14:25. The Intercity from Chur arrives and gets prepared for the continuing trip to Stuttgart in less than 10 minutes.

Since Zurich is a Terminus station, a new engine needs to be coupled to the end of the train to pull the cars to Stuttgart.

The train reverses direction again in Singen/Hohentwiel and now gets pulled by a BR101 locomotive of Deutsche Bahn. Since I now sat in the last car, between Singen and Stuttgart I spent some time in the rear vestibule and enjoyed the view. Yes, some of the other passengers in the car looked at me a little bit funny ...

In Rottweil, we are meeting the opposing Intercity 187 which has left Stuttgart at 14:29. Still quite a bit of snow on the ground.

 Intercity 184 arrives in Stuttgart 17:35, right on time.

The cars will stay here at track 5 for almost an hour and return to Zurich at 18:29 as InterCity 283.
