ⓘ Allersberg-Express

Allersberg-Express is the brand name for the RegionalBahn train service between Nuremberg and Allersberg in Bavaria in southern Germany, operated by Deutsche Bahn. It started operations on 10 December 2006 and is one of the few regional trains to run on a German high-speed line. The total journey time is about fifteen minutes; the train is subject to the fare structure of the Verkehrsverbund GroSraum Nurnberg. The Allersberg-Express is also called the R9 Express on VGN network web site.

3. Technical Information

  • On the open line, the train set runs with the LZB in-cab signalling, where available. Due to technical restrictions, however, the train cannot depart on LZB after reversing in Allersberg, as the earliest possible entry point to the LZB signalling is located on the open line north of the station, at km 23. For that reason, the train has to wait at Allersberg until the next conventional signal, which is located about 15 km down the line on the Reichswald branch, has cleared. If the Allersberg-Express allows an ICE to pass, it therefore takes a minimum wait of four minutes before the train can depart.
  • The Allersberg-Express, with its top speed of 140 km/h 87 mph, is the only non-pressurised regional train which regularly passes ICE 3 trains running at their top speed of 300 km/h 186 mph. The service also is one of the few regional trains to perform a scheduled run on a German high-speed line, the other notable train being the Munchen-Nurnberg-Express.
