Introduction: This is my route suggestion for the Neckartalbahn running from the popular tourist city of Heidelberg to the small yet busy town of Mosbach (Baden) running through the beatiful Neckartal which is covered in forest on both sides creating a wonderful ambiance with beautiful scenery. Afer leaving Heidelberg HBF and stopping at Heidelberg Weststadt/Südstadt the train drives under the Königstuhl in the appropriately named Königstuhltunnel which brings you to Heidelberg Altstadt, formerly known as Heidelberg Karlstor, which is the first station in the Neckartal. From there you have a view of the famous Heidelberg Castle located on the Königstuhl as well as the Karlstor which stands in the middle of a traffic roundabout. After that the route continues through the winding Neckartal passing towns like Neckargemünd, where the line crosses the Neckar in an interesting double-deck bridge designed for both people and trains, and Eberbach which is a changing point for trains to Frankfurt am Main. After roughly 50 Kilometres of the Neckartal you arrive at Mosbach Neckarelz which is part of the KVV Network. Between there and the final stop of Mosbach (Baden) is only a small distance running along a road most of the way. The route is part of the S-Bahn RheinNeckar network connecting cities like Mannheim, Heidelberg and Mosbach with an hourly to half hourly service. Services: For the services would have the S1 on the entire route from Heidelberg to Mosbach continuing out of the map at both ends and running every hour. Aswell as the S2 entering the map at Heidelberg and going to Mosbach (Baden) where alternates terminating and continuing to Eberbach, there are also exceptions where the train turns back at Mosbach Neckarelz. Together, the S1 and S2 perform a half hourly service between Heidelberg and Mosbach stopping at every station. There would also be the S5 (Unit 1) and S51 (Unit 2) running as a double unit between Heidelberg HBF, the terminus of the train, and Neckargemünd HBF where they leave the map heading to Eppingen and Aglasterhausen respectively. There is also an express service as the RE10a which starts at Mannheim and enters the map at Heidelberg HBF. This train goes almost the full length of the line, ending at Mosbach Neckarelz where it continues to Heilbronn. The service only stops at Heidelberg, Eberbach and Mosbach Neckarelz along the route. * Freight lines using this route include both the coal trains operated by MRCE with their BR 182s aswell as car transporter which originates in Neckarsulm at the Audi car factory. This uses a selection of different locos including the DB BR 185 and the DB BR 155. Both of these services run along the entire route starting at Heidelberg HBF on track 6 and ending at Mosbach Neckarelz. They will also only be accessible for owners of the DLC Main-Spessart-Bahn. * Credit: Betjoin Trains: There would be two trains included in the route, both of which already exist with different specifications. All S-Bahn services would be performed with the modernized DB BR 425 in DB S-Bahn RheinNeckar livery. The differences between these and the already existing trains are a slightly different interior, modern destination displays (Orange instead of green), new steps that fold out on the doors and a cleaner look. Considering this is sold as a seperate train I think that is a reasonable list. The current DB BR 425 one does NOT use the line. The RegionalExpress service is done by the Abbelio Talent 2, the BR 1442 in BWegt Livery. Again, this is slightly different to the one already in existence but I think the change is doable. * The freight service with the car transporter would utilise the DB BR 185 in Railion livery as included in the DLC Main-Spessart-Bahn aswell as the DB BR 155 if you own that DLC. As for the coal train I believe they should use the DB BR 185 unless you own the DLC DB BR 182, in which case that would be the loco of choice as per reality despite the livery being wrong. * Credit: Betjoin Future DLC: This route has massive potential for future loco DLC as the DB BR 111 with the popular n-Wagen for the RE10a, which used to run on the line before Abbellio took over, and the not yet in service Siemens Mireo DB BR 463 in DB BWegt S-Bahn RheinNeckar livery can both be implemented in the future. Pictures: I believe that the Neckartal truly is a beautiful place, so I think I'll just let the pictures do the talking: All of these were taken in the Neckartal between 2010 and 2020. Cab ride videos for both Heidelberg HBF - Eberbach and Eberbach - Mosbach (Baden) can be found here and here, the weather is unfortunately not great but it's the best I could find. These we're not taken by me.
