Ticket to Ride cab rides are a little different! In addition to allowing the viewer to enjoy the scene from the “driving seat” we tell the story of the route - from both a technical point of view and from that of a potential visitor to the area.

Sometimes we take a break from the journey to watch the trains go by. But don’t worry, we pick up the cab ride where we left off!

At least four trains an hour in each direction ply this major international route, InterCity, EuroCity and ICTs. Add in local traffic and freight and its a busy trip! We travel south from Koblenz in the driving trailer of train IC 725 that started its run at Dortmund and will conclude its itinerary in Nuremberg. Tail end power is a EuroSprinter derived Class 120.

Down the most picturesque section of the river: Boppard, St Goar, Oberwesel before calling at Mainz, where we see work in progress on the NBS that will link Mainz with Cologne. Across the Rhine past the General Motors works at Rüsselsheim and then onto the first section of the Cologne - Frankfurt Neubau strecker to be completed.

Then it’s a pause at the striking new airport station before entering the Frankfurt urban area. Across the Main and into the Hauptbahnhof.

During the journey we have external shots from the lineside, the river and even a quick look at Cologne from the air!

Filmed in June 2000 this is the third of a series of five Rail Films on Germany 2000 from Ticket to Ride.

Filmed in DVC Pro to Broadcast standards and narrated by Wiltshire travel writer Phyllis Watts.
