The Schönbuch Railway (German: Schönbuchbahn) is a branch line in the Stuttgart region of the German state of Baden-Württemberg. It is single-track and standard gauge, and is 17.0 kilometres (10.6 mi) long. It links Dettenhausen with Böblingen, where a connection is made with lines S1 and S60 of the Stuttgart S-Bahn. Line S1 provides a direct service to Stuttgart.[1]

The Schönbuchbahn is owned by the Zweckverband Schönbuchbahn (ZVS), and is operated by the Württembergische Eisenbahn-Gesellschaft (WEG), a member of the Veolia Transport group.[1]

The typical service pattern consists of two trains an hour, although the frequency may reduce to one train an hour at weekends or in the evenings.[2]

Rolling stock[edit]

Passenger services on the Schönbuchbahn use a fleet of 6 partially low floor Stadler Regio-Shuttle RS1 units.[3] In December 2016 transport authority Zweckverband Schönbuchbahn selected Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles for a €51·3m contract to supply nine three-car light rail vehicles of a new design.[4]
