Line 870 Hersbruck - Schwandorf

The Hersbruck - Schwandorf line is part of a network of diesel worked routes running through hilly country north and east of Nürnberg to the borders of the Czech Republic and the former DDR. Most passenger services are worked by DMUs but there are a handful of through trains to Praha, hauled by ALEX class 223 diesels and a number of freights hauled by ex-DR class 232 locos. The line features significant gradients and runs through some very attractive scenery.
