KBS 978 - Günzburg - Mindelheim


The branchline from Günzburg to Mindelheim via Krumbach, which is also known as "Mittelschwabenbahn", was opened in several steps between 1892 and 1910. The line, which runs through the hills of Swabia and does not reach any big city, never made it to major importance. But that's probably one reason for the appeal, the Mittelschwabenbahn has. Short trains, often railcars, have been all the line has ever seen. Almost the entire line runs through beautiful, though unspectacular scenery. Numerous photo locations can be found in the Northern part, including the "little Semmering" between Neuburg a.d. Kammel and Ellzee; but also the Southern section is good for more then just one visit.
At the end of the steam-era, V100-diesels and the accumulator-railcars of class 515 were used on the line, until - in 1998 - Überdingen-railbuses returned, followed by class 628.0 multiple units.
Today, almost all trains are operated by modern class 642 DMUs
