The (AVG) Albtal-Verkehrs-Gesellschaft GmbH- Karlsruhe’s longest tramtrain route – S4

by

The AVG’s longest run is now a 210km (130 mile) S4 service from Öhringen through central Karlsruhe to Achern, south-west of Baden-Baden. The TramTrain route uses DB mainlines, regional railway lines and on-street running in various cities.

The above map gives the various routes of Karlsruhe’s famous TramTrain network; largely in an area of comparable density and population of Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. This something to think about when planners and politicians claim: “There isn’t the density in the Fraser Valley to support ‘rail’ transit.”

    130 miles! That’s like the distance between Montreal & Ottawa!

    Zweisystem replies: Yes it is exactly so and soon the line will sever directly into Stuttgart!
