    The route Kempten-Oberstdorf is an extremely beautiful train route in the Alpes in South Germany and it connects Kempten, the biggest city in the holiday region Allgäu and Oberstdorf, the southernmost train station in Germany. The route is 34 kilometers (21 miles) long, not electrified, has 9 stations and the full journey takes 45 minutes. There are RE and RB services with the modern BR 612 with tilting technology and intercity services with the old BR 218. Please add this route. We need German Diesel for tsw!!

    Looks very interesting and would definitely play it!

    And it does look like a project that DTG can work on, short route, German environment. Only the landscape and the trains need to be worked on. I hope DTG acknowledge this as this is a really good suggestion.

    Would be good to use the ‘Rabbits’ on a route. Classic German diesels.

    A diesel only german route would be very welcome and this looks like a great example.

    Like the idea and would pay for it however we need slightly longer routes.
