List of regional railway lines in North Rhine-Westphalia

The List of regional rail lines in North Rhine-Westphalia provides a list of all Regional-Express and Regionalbahn railway lines in North Rhine-Westphalia. The passenger rail service in North Rhine-Westphalia is one of the densest train services in Germany, comprising 100 million train kilometers and is mainly operated on an integrated timetable, which has been in effect since 1998 with the introduction its current version, known as 1998 NRW-Takt.

TimetableEdit

The examples of the NRW integrated timetable given here are solely to illustrate the system. They do not include the regional rail to tram and railway lines. Pure tram routes are consequently not included in this list. Current information can be obtained from the responsible transport associations (VRR and VRS).

The timetable is predominantly based on zero symmetry. Concretely, this means that the trains on the lines with hourly service meet on the minutes :59 and :29, on the lines with service every two hours just at the minute :59. The departure times of the opposite direction are calculated by mirroring the arrival times at the minute :58.5.

All the lines provide connections to hub stations and their connection with local transport.

Some lines are interconnected, for example the RB 71 with the RB 73 or the RB 67 with the RE 82.

Regional-Express and Regionalbahn linesEdit

Lines in which the state of North Rhine-Westphalia has determined to be in the public interest and necessity are ordered and supported by the state. These are shown with a yellow background.

The specified sub-networks are the units through which the lines are awarded.

  • Lines or sections with a frequency of more than 60 minutes, usually every 120 minutes, are written in italics.
