Line 466 Rechte Rheinstrecke
The line from Koblenz to Wiesbaden along the right/east bank of the Rhein is one of Germany's busiest freight arteries and very scenic as well. Most of DB's freight electrics can be seen along with the locos of numerous independent operators and, occasionally, diverted ICs and ICEs.

Line 610 Bebra - Fulda
The Bebra - Fulda line runs along Haunetal, a beautiful river valley flanked by rounded, forested hills and dotted with small farming villages. The railway is far from the quiet backwater you might expect in such a rural idyll. It's a double track electrified main line and a vital link between northern and southern Germany. Freight traffic is heavy and varied and there were regular loco hauled passengers as well when I first visited in 2006.
