Introduction: The famous Vogelfluglinie (Bird Flight Line) is the route between Hamburg and Copenhagen via Puttgarden, where the train crosses a ferry to reach the other side - quite unique. The route proposed shall be from Lübeck Hauptbahnhof to Puttgarden (88.6 km/55 miles) on the island of Fehmarn. In 2011, the reliable yet costly ICE-TD ran the daily high-speed services, and the 628 ran the RB and RE services, with many terminating at Neustadt (Hols) and Fehmarn-Burg a few hundred metres away from the main line, and the remaining services terminating at Puttgarden. Many freight services from Hamburg and Lübeck to Fehmarn and to the Neustadt (Hols) yard are also seen on the route. Drifting past scenic coasts and calm countrysides, it’s got a variety of scenery and services suited for all german railfans - in my opinion. The Route: Starting off in the city of Lübeck, the route travels northward past suburban towns towards Bad Schwartau, where the line branches northwest to Pönitz, northwards towards Puttgarden and eastward to Lübeck Travemünde. Continuing north, past Ratekau, the rural scenery starts kicking in, with beautiful farms, patches of forests, and countrysides galore. Between Haffkrug and Neustadt (Hols.) a glimpse of the coast can be seen, giving a calm mood to the services. Then, at Neustadt, where some RB services terminate, the route goes past the busy freight yard and continues north along the motorway until the town of Oldenburg (Hols). Continuing northward, the route then goes above the Fehmarnsund, past a beautiful bridge, and onto the island of Fehmarn, all the way to Puttgarden, where the services to Copenhagen move onto the ferry and where the remaining RE and RB services terminate. Rolling Stock: For the RE and RB services, in 2011, the 628 took the helm of those services; a very interesting and fun DMU to drive. For the ICE services, the ICE-TD takes over those services. A loud, powerful DMU with tilting technology, also very fun to drive. DLCS: For the freight services, the Br 232 was used mostly (TSG is developing it too): There were also Br 155s which handled freight too (only between Lübeck and Neustadt): Why I chose this route / Why it should be added / Final Notes: Firstly, TSW 2 has lacked a German DMU or even a majority single track route or even a diesel route! All 3 of these issues are tackled with this route and it also brings in amazing scenery, coastal areas which have been quite rare, farms, countrysides and forests. You could also allow the ICE TD to hop on the ferry which can make things very interesting.So much variety in a route which is 55 miles - a stretch but something DTG can handle as seen with the 60 mile long Clinchfield Railroad which is in development. I chose the year 2011 as it’s a year with a variety of services and includes very fun DMUs, nowadays we have the common 648 and rare 218 services which are only active in the summer. Hopefully DTG can suit with the year. Yes I am aware the ICE TDs were leased to DSB, but I hope that an agreement can be made to license that train. If not, you can stick in the DB logo and hope someone uses the livery designer to change it. And that’s all. Thanks for reading as always.
