Today I will take a round tour from Frankfurt and back, I will take Cologne-Frankfurt high speed railway up north until Troisdorf, then back along East Rhine railway.
Constructed between 1883-1887
My next train is this RE8 service between Mönchengladbach and Koblenz, also named Rhein-Erft-Express.
Operated with DB Class 425. Basically it is same train as DB Class 423 (used for S-Bahn services), but Class 425 has less doors, and it has a WC.
Sweden when I travelled year 2016. Hectorrail has 12 locomotives of this type.
