|Schwarzwald Line||The Schwarzwald line (Black Forest line) lies in south-western Germany and runs
from Offenburg through the Gutachtal valley to Donaueschingen.
Its most interesting part is around Triberg, with serpentines and lots of tunnels. It was designed by Robert Gerwig and opened in 1873. It became famous for its daring construction. (The tunnels are not illustrated in the left image, but in the larger one).
It is part of the German national network, DB, and has now double-track and is electrified.

|Wutachtal Railway||The Wutachtal railway is situated in southern Schwarzwald and
opened in 1890. The line was built partly for strategical reasons as "canon
line" after Alsace- Lorraine became part of Germany in 1871.
It is to-day a preserved railway from Weizen station up to Zollhaus- Blumberg:
