It has shown that many SBahn trains of the inner SBahn-ring are far beyond their capacities.

Think about a ring consisting of 4 stations: the ICE station where passengers are transfered to and three stations where passengers are picked up. The current SBahn serves the stations in one direction. Several problems show up:

  • the last station before the ICE station is weakly served because most trains going there are already fully loaded.
  • with a huge amount of waiting passenger the station-time of a train increases dramatically (and the track usage is comparatively low). Therefore, many trains have to wait on the track and can't enter a station.


  • Kaze came up with the idea to enhance the Sbahns into two directions: one clockwise, another one counterclockwise.
  • Mucht suggest to enhance the inner Sbahn to 4-tile trains. Also, the stations should have 4 platforms - 2 for each direction.
