Routes[edit]

Main-Weser Railway[edit]

City tunnel[edit]

Main article: Citytunnel Frankfurt

The city tunnel is an underground, pure S-Bahn route used by almost all services (except for the S7 service which terminates at the central station). In a short section between Mühlberg and Offenbach-Kaiserlei the South Main railway is used.

History[edit]

Year Stations Route
1974 (R6) 13 Friedberg – Frankfurt Hbf
1978 16 (+3) Friedberg – Hauptwache
1983 17 (+1) Friedberg – Konstablerwache
1990 21 (+4) Friedberg – Stresemannallee
1997 20 (-1) Friedberg – Frankfurt Süd
1999 21 (+1) Friedberg – Frankfurt Süd

The S6 was one of the first six services of the Rhine-Main S-Bahn system. In a prior test operation it ran between Kronberg and Frankfurt Central Station. The service was then called R6 where the letter "R" stands for regional. After the opening of the Frankfurt Citytunnel the service was renamed to S6 and extended to the new Hauptwache underground station. Further extensions of the tunnel followed in 1983 (Konstablerwache) and 1990 (Ostendstraße and Lokalbahnhof) so that Stresemannallee became the service's eastern terminal.
