    Dear Sir or Madam, dear DTG-Team,

    The high-speed line Hanover – Würzburg (at least until the mid-1970s also called the Hanover – Gemünden supplementary line) is a 327-kilometer high-speed railway line
    between Hanover and Würzburg. The route, which was built between 1973 and 1991, was the longest contiguous new construction project of the Deutsche Bundesbahn. It is part of the rail network of DB Netz AG and is scheduled to run during the day from
    Daily around 110 long-distance trains at up to 280 km / h and at night by an average of 26 freight trains at up to 160 km / h.

    Since the long high-speed route of 327 kilometers would be too long for the Train Simulator, I make a suggestion that you only build half of the route (Hanover - Kassel-Wilhelmshöhe).

    Section Hannover – Göttingen:

    > The 327.4 kilometer long new line begins at 0.0 kilometer in Hanover Central Station. In a southerly direction, it follows in the Hanover city area over which (primarily at trade fairs) also served by long-distance trains
    Hannover Messe / Laatzen station at km 8 to Rethen on the existing north-south route. The two NBS tracks run between Hanover Bismarckstraße and the junction in the middle [7] between those of the old line. The high-speed route
    leaves the parallel position there without intersections and swings away from the old route in a south-westerly direction. It then crosses between Rethen and Barnten on eleven bridges totaling 1.1 kilometers in length and up to eight meters per hour
    Without dams totaling 6.9 kilometers in length, the flood areas of Leine and Innerste. At Sorsum (km 29), the Hildesheim loop is a single-track connecting curve in a southerly direction, that of trains from and
    to Berlin via Wolfsburg, Braunschweig and Hildesheim.

    When you enter the Escherberg tunnel and two other tubes, the route leaves the North German Plain and passes the Hildesheim Forest. Between Sibbesse and Bad Gandersheim the route follows the course of a valley without
    larger engineering structures, before the Leinegraben is reached after another six tunnels and five valley bridges and the high-speed line at Edesheim again swings into a parallel position with the north-south line. There is at
    km 77 the possibility of changing from and to the old route in both directions. Northeim is bypassed to the west, at Nörten-Hardenberg station at km 89 there is another possibility to change tracks with the old line.
    The Göttingen train station is reached at kilometer 99.

    Section Göttingen – Kassel:

    > In the section between the Göttingen and Kassel-Wilhelmshöhe train stations, the route largely follows the straight line. Almost 21 kilometers of the 44-kilometer section run in tunnels, including 10,525 meters
    long Mündener Tunnel (km 121), the second longest tube in Germany.

    At the level of the Fulda valley bridge at Kragenhof (km 133), the high-speed line will be parallel to the north-south route, which it will follow for nine kilometers to the southern outskirts of Kassel. The route happens
    western edge of the Kassel marshalling yard and reaches the Kassel-Wilhelmshöhe station at kilometer 144. The new station built as part of the high-speed line bypasses the Kassel Hauptbahnhof terminus.
    In the Kassel area, the route runs for around 15 kilometers, bundling traffic routes with existing routes.

    For the sparsely populated but topographically very turbulent section between Göttingen and the state border north of Kassel, the highest costs per kilometer were incurred during the construction phase. The high-speed route runs in this
    Section past towns at a distance of about 700 to 1000 meters, a large part of the route is already in tunnels in which the up to 400 meter high elevations between Göttingen and Kassel are crossed. Exceptions
    are the Göttingen districts of Grone and Groß Ellershausen, for which noise protection measures had to be built.

    This route would be your first high-speed route in the range. I put a link to the route here, in which you can display the pictures in the box on the right for bridges and tunnels how they look: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schnellfahrstrecke_Hannover–W% C3% BCrzburg

    I would be very happy if you could build this track for the TS2021 next

    Best regards
