750 Stuttgart - Ulm

When All Else Fails

146.207 climbed the bank towards Beimerstetten with RB 19235, the 12:29 from Plochingen to Ulm Hbf, on 10 May 2017.

When the overhead fell down near Göppingen earlier in the day and everything else stopped running, the RB trains kept going. This one obviously turned round well short of Stuttgart as the loco wasn’t due back for another 90 minutes.

It was around three hours before the ICs and ICEs restarted and another three before everything returned to normal. Of course it had to happen on the one sunny day of the week.
