About 350 trains a day used the 61 km long route Augsburg - Munich, while the construction took place alongside. This was a particular challenge for the planning and realisation of the line extension. Nor was the excavation easy: the soft soils and moor areas in Haspelmoor required special construction procedures.
With impressive pictures, this book gives an insight into the complexity of the project, but also how it all began in 1840 with the Munich-Augsburg railway. Today, with over 9,000 commuters, the railway line between Augsburg and Munich is absolutely essential and since December 2011, has been connecting the two Bavarian cities faster and more reliably than ever before.
