Photographer's Note

Since my final destination was the south (High) Black Forest (in German language Hochschwarzwald) I had to use the DB Regio train from Stuttgart to Waldshut, small town located in the southern edge of Black Forest, close to border with Switzerland.

DB Regio AG is a subsidiary of DB (Deutsche Bahn - German Raiway) which operates short and medium distance passenger train services in Germany.

Unlike its long-distance counterpart DB Fernverkehr (DB Long Distance Travel), DB Regio does not operate trains on its own account. Services are ordered and paid for by the German states.

Some states have awarded long-term contracts to DB Regio (usually 10 to 15 years).
The DB Regio offers a basic service from all local stations. It provides the connection between the regions and city centres. It also connects to the inter-regional ICE and Regional-Express trains.

The departure time from large central stations is very well coordinated with ICE and Regional-Express trains time schedule, in this way the traveler waiting time at the station is kept to an absolute minimum.
