Zurich - Stuttgart - Waiblingen

While I take this route fairly regularly, there is almost always something new. This time, a SBB Cargo class 421 will lead the InterCity until Singen, which makes for an interesting composition. The lightly rolling hills of the landscape south of Schaffhausen are not that impressive, but I really like the mid-summer green tones on display here.

The Rheinfall from the other perspective.

The electro-mechanical control tower in Singen was built in 1958, apparently using older equipment from elsewhere in the country, and sports typical architectural elements of the time.

Stuttgart, almost there.

Arrival at Stuttgart Hbf.

I forgo the S-Bahn ride suggested by the Bahn app and instead take the RegionalExpress to Waiblingen, which is operated by DB with one of the new Baden-Wuerttemberg owned EMUs.

I seem to manage to pick trains lately that drop me off on the Murrbahn side of Waiblingen.
