    Br 218 DB can be used for IC housing that means two 218’s and the 8 IC coaches. The 218 can also be used for freight.

    BR 612 can be used for RB and RE service

    Arriva rides also on the line with a BR 245.

    final thought

    I think it would be a very scenic and fun route with a good look on a german diesel route.
