Introduction

This list is based on the timetable in force until 13 December 2009, unless otherwise stated. Standard abbreviations are explained in General Information.

In the heading to each entry the map reference for the line in the Schweers+Wall Eisenbahn Atlas (2007/2008 edition) is shown, in italic, in addition to the reference to M.G. Ball's European Railway Atlas.

Obscure services

Saline – Westen

[10007] (16A3, 9B3) DE09/151

This is a branch off the line from Westanleger to Wangerooge. Passenger trains run to/from Westen when required by pre-booked parties staying at the Youth Hostel or other accommodation there. During the summer season, excursions run between Wangerooge and Westen: see DB's Wangerooge website and search ("Suche") for "Westen" during the season.

Bremen-Sebaldsbrück – Bremen Hbf (via Abzw Vahr)

[380] (16B1, not shown, 9C2-9B2) DE09/152

Trains from the Hannover line to platforms 1, 2 or 3 at Bremen Hbf may use this spur, which passes under both the main Hannover line and the Osnabrück line. They may, alternatively, use crossovers at the approach to Bremen Hbf. The route via Abzw Vahr has been used by RE trains from Hannover to Bremen and also by IC trains from Hannover to Oldenburg. The RE trains have been retimed between Achim and Bremen, so may now use the main line; reports will be welcomed. Trains in the opposite direction normally use the flat junction at Hastedt but, if the departure signal at Bremen Hbf platforms 1, 2 or 3 shows speed restriction 4 (= 40 km/h), that may indicate use of this route. There is no passenger use of the connections between Bremen-Hemelingen and Bremen Hbf via Abzw Vahr known to the compilers.

Bremen avoiding line: Sagehorn – Dreye (Gabelung)

[10] (16B1, 9D1-9C3) DE09/153

Most trains between Hamburg and Osnabrück call at Bremen Hbf, but this route enables those that do not to avoid a lengthy detour.

H FSSuX ICE1094 Hamburg-Altona – 06:12 Hamburg Hbf – Köln Hbf
E FSSuX IC2194 Hamburg-Altona – 06:12 Hamburg Hbf – Köln Hbf

D FO IC2406 Köln Hbf – 17:26 Diepholz – Stralsund

Kirchweyhe – Kirchweyhe BTE

(16B1 not shown, 20B4) DE09/153A

This south to west curve provides the only usable connection between DB and the Bremen-Thedinghauser Eisenbahn. BTE runs a number of excursions each summer from Leeste to destinations on the DB network. See www.pingelheini.de.

Munster (Örtze) – Munster (Örtze) Kaserne Emminger Weg

[17.2] (17B1 not shown, 21D4) DE09/154

This is a branch line which serves an army camp south-west of Munster (Örtze). There is a passenger halt by a level crossing in Emminger Weg, in part of the military area that is open to the public, about 2.5km from Munster (Örtze) station. The following trains start and terminate there for the benefit of Bundeswehr personnel.

FO IC1931 11:50 Munster (Örtze) Kaserne Emminger Weg – Berlin Südkreuz
SuO IC1930 Berlin Südkreuz – 23:05 Munster (Örtze) – Munster (Örtze) Kaserne Emminger Weg

Lüneburg Westseite {West station}

[110] (18A2, not shown, 22C3) DE09/155

This is a separate station, west of the main line, which is used by Hamburg local trains starting or terminating at Lüneburg between 08:00 and 23:00 daily. It is also used by all trains to and from Dannenberg Ost.

Osnabrück Schinkel and Löhner Curves: Osnabrück ob Bf – Wissingen (Bbf Lüstringen)

[31, 375, 385] (25A2, 40C3) DE09/156

This is a curve from the high level station at Osnabrück to the Hannover line.

Osnabrück Schinkel and Stahlwerks Curves: Osnabrück ob Bf – Osnabrück unt Bf

[410] (25A2, 40C3) DE09/157

These curves enable trains to run between the high level and low level stations at Osnabrück. The following trains are diverted via this route from 26 October until 22 November 2009, as a result of engineering work between Münster (Westf) and Rheine.

Lehrte – Sehnde

[323] (26B2, 122D4) DE09/160

At the flying junction with the Gifhorn and Braunschweig lines, east of Lehrte, trains from Hildesheim to beyond Lehrte use the longer north chord; all other trains to or from the Hildesheim line use the shorter south chord from Lehrte Ost.
