    The West Rhine Railway is a 152km railway line running from Koln HBF to Mainz HBF, I will be talking about the 81km line from Frankfurt HBF to Koblenz HBF on the Western bank of the river Rhine, this railway could provide the most diverse German railway in the game due to the large usage of both electric and diesel trains.

    Leaving Frankfurt the line passes Frankfurt Airport, after leaving the airport the railway crosses over the Südbrücke crossing the Rhine before entering Mainz, the railway then follows the the banks of the Rhine until arriving at Koblenz passing tows such as Bingem Am Rhein and Oberwesel
    There are several passenger lines that run on the line (I probably have missed some), such sights along the way include the remains of the Hindenburg Bridge near Bingem which as destroyed in March 1945 by retreating German forces, Rheinstein Castle, Ehrenfels Castle, Binger Mausetrum and the Sooneck castle to name a few

    The West Rhine Railway is one of the busiest railway lines in Germany for freight, and only got busier after the Koln-Frankfurt high speed line was opened and the relief of ICE services meant more freight trains could run on the West Rhine Railway
