Stopover in FRA (Groß Gerau)

I'm on my way to Slovenia, but first I will do a layover (or a stopover) at Frankfurt airport. During the stopover, I can visit the nearby train station Groß Gerau
Arriving at Frankfurt airport. Here it is possible to spot large airplanes and more exotic airlines than in Stockholm Arlanda airport
Frankfurt airport is a busy and congested one, so it happens often than the plane is parked outside the terminal and the passengers are transferred by bus


To get to Groß Gerau, I have to take a train to Frankfurt am Main Stadion station and change trains there

After arriving at Groß Gerau Dornberg station, I take a walk to Groß Gerau station
Groß Gerau station is located at Rhine-Main railway which is a continuation of the Left/Right Rhine railway and is important for freight traffic
As soon as I arrive here, the first train is coming
It is 185 614, from Alpha trains and Crossrail AG

H.Essers from Belgium

More trains from Belgium
186 507, Railpool and Crossrail Benelux N.V.

A bit of everything here, LKW Walter, Transped, Arcese
HLB Bahn operates the line between Wiesbaden and Aschaffenburg
The train is switching to the Frankfurt-Mannheim railway which is primarily used by high speed trains
Today it looks like many trains are diverted on this line, there is another train further away coming from Mannheim
