Until probably mid/end of January 2023, no trains are able to stop in Eckartshausen-Ilshofen due to construction work, or only a few trains will be able to stop in Eckartshausen-Ilshofen from mid-December because both platforms are demolished and to be rebuilt.
Go-Ahead (RE90), Westfrankenbahn (RE80) and DB Regio (MEX19) are affected by the closure of the stop in Eckartshausen-Ilshofen. DB Regio, together with Westfrankenbahn, has now published the first SEV service with buses for the week from November 21st to 25th, 2022. SEV buses run every hour at 5:15 am, 6:00 am, 6:40 am, 7:45 am, 8:45 am, ..., 11:45 pm from Crailsheim ZOB to Eckartshausen. In the opposite direction, SEV buses run every hour at 4:55, 5:35, 6:20, 7:00, 8:05, 9:05, ..., 23:05 and 0:05 from Eckartshausen to Crailsheim.
A current extension provides the following additional travel options: For RB 17501 (arrival 1:49 a.m. in Crailsheim), a large-capacity taxi runs from SHA-Hessental (departing 1:38 a.m.) to Eckartshausen-Ilshofen (arriving at 2:02 a.m.). For RB 17504 (4:38 a.m. from Crailsheim) there is also a large taxi from Eckartshausen-Ilshofen (from 4:25 a.m.) to Schwäbisch Hall-Hessental (arriving at 4:50 a.m.).
Passengers are asked to understand the construction-related restrictions at Eckartshausen station. Unfortunately, with the SEV buses, numerous connections to and from the trains on the buses and on-call buses are also lost, especially for passengers traveling to and from SHA-Hessental, Stuttgart and Heilbronn.
In order to stabilize train traffic on the Tauberbahn during the week, there are severe restrictions on train traffic on weekends and public holidays between Schrozberg and Crailsheim. The following information from Westfrankenbahn:
Cancellation of all train traffic on weekends and public holidays between Schrozberg and Crailsheim
Rail replacement service Schrozberg ◄► Crailsheim on weekends and public holidays (from October 1st until expected May 2023)
Rail replacement service Bad Mergentheim/Markelsheim <> Weikersheim as well as earlier travel times Crailsheim > Markelsheim
Individual trains on the RE 87 (Aschaffenburg - Crailsheim) and RB 88 (Crailsheim - Wertheim) lines will be replaced by buses between Bad Mergentheim/Markelsheim and Weikersheim from now until December 10th. As a result, two trains on the RB 88 route from Crailsheim to Markelsheim depart earlier: RB 23360 Mon-Fri at 5:17 a.m. (instead of 5:35 a.m.) from Crailsheim, and RB 23348 at 12:32 p.m. (instead of 12:33 p.m.) Crailsheim.
Blockage of the Reichholzheim tunnel due to construction work and the tense staffing situation in the signal boxes
Rail replacement service Wertheim ◄► Lauda (October 4 to November 18)
We regret the failures in rail transport and hope that train journeys can be replaced by SEV buses.

The K2667 between Cröffelbach and Unterscheffach is completely closed to traffic in two construction phases due to road surface renovation and widening measures until end of March 2023. During this time, it is not possible to serve Unterscheffach, and in phase 2 also Hopfach, due to the lack of turning facilities for the line 23 buses (company Müller).
For individual journeys, a turning facility will be set up in the Brunnenweg crossing area in Cröffelbach for the entire duration of the construction work. The following regulations also apply to the individual construction phases.
Construction phase 1
- closed -
Construction phase 2
Until now probably March 30th, 2023 the section Cröffelbach - Hopfach will be closed. The stops "Unterscheffach" and "Reinsberg" will remain relocated to the replacement stop in Reinsberg on the "Heroltstraße storage area". Reinsberg continues to be serviced and the bus turns around there. The "Hopfach Ort" stop cannot be served either due to the lack of a turning facility and will be relocated to the "Cröffelbach Post" stop until the construction work is complete.
For schoolchildren from Unterscheffach and Hopfach, emergency transport with 9-seater cars will be set up: timetable for schoolchildren's emergency transport Unterscheffach-Hopfach (PDF, 222 KB). This emergency timetable is valid until the end of construction phase 2.
During a weather-related winter break at the construction site, regular bus services can probably be offered. In the event of a winter break, we will inform you here.
The RufBus line R23 can usually serve all stops, sometimes with dead ends. This can lead to delays in the RufBus. Passengers are asked to understand the construction-related restrictions.
From now until probably mid/end of 2023, the "Untermünkheim Rathaus" stop has been relocated approx. 150 meters to the west, in front of the building at Hohenloher Str. 47.
The background is the setting up of a construction crane at the location of the previous stop. Passengers are asked for their understanding.
The "Obersontheim Fa. Kärcher" stop is relocated from its current position on Schloßstraße to Gaildorfer Straße on a trial basis. The new stop is in the area of the pedestrian crossing at the commercial center. The background to the relocation is the lack of a barrier-free expansion of the existing stop and occasional problems when approaching the stop due to waiting trucks.
After there were no complaints about the relocation of the stop during the test period, the municipal council has now approved a permanent relocation. The timetable changes will continue to apply.
In the course of the stop relocation, the following journey changes continue to apply indefinitely:

Until now probably the end of 2023, as part of the renovation of the L1050 through Mainhardt, the main road will be closed to all traffic from the B14 junction to the Friedhofstraße junction. This affects all journeys on lines 20, 20A and 21 that travel from the B14 to the "Mainhardt Wendeplatte" stop.
Access to and from the "Wendeplatte" stop is via Friedhofstrasse and Hauptstrasse during the closure. The “Turmuhrenmuseum” stop can therefore not be served and will be relocated to the “Mainhardt Wendeplatte”.
Furthermore, the "Mainhardt Industrie" stop cannot be served with all routes of line 20. In order to continue to ensure boarding, the following courses coming from the direction of Ammertsweiler also serve the "Mainhardt Industrie" stops, due to detours in front of the "Mainhardt Wendeplatte" stop. Please note that the departure times at the "Industrie" stop are approx. 3 to 4 minutes earlier than stated in the timetable. The following courses are affected:
Mon-Fri 5320-002 S / 5320-202 F / 5320-008 / 5320-010 S / 5320-218 F / 5320-050 / 5320-054 / 5320-058 / 5320-076 / 5320-384 / 5320-392 / 5320-396 + 096
Saturdays 5320-422 / 5320-440 / 5320-446+448 / 5320-464
Sundays 5320-630 / 5320-648
In addition, in the Friedhofstraße area (behind the Aral petrol station, near the Limes-Stüble) two replacement stops are served by all journeys. This means that passengers traveling to and from Schwäbisch Hall can always board and disembark.
Passengers are asked for their understanding of the construction-related restrictions and changes. In general, delays of a few minutes can occur due to the detour.
The Kocherbrücke in Braunsbach on the K2560 in the direction of Arnsdorf will be rebuilt. The Röhler bus line 31 has to make a detour (probably until May 2022).
The rerouting of the buses takes place via the L1045 - K2558 - K2559 to Rückertsbronn junction Arnsdorf. The longer travel times of the buses have been incorporated into the timetable.
Notice the constraction timetable line 31 (PDF, 347 kByte).
Some places are only approached for the exit during the diversion. On trip 71516, which is also published in the timetable for line 29, the places Eschental 12:57 p.m. and Einweiler 12:59 p.m. cannot be reached during the closure due to traffic. Existing transfers in school traffic can usually be implemented.
Passengers are asked to understand the construction-related changes in the timetable.
The L1037 between Liebesdorf and Gerabronn will be completely closed to traffic until probably December 2nd, 2022. The reason for this is exploratory drilling as a preliminary stage to a complete road renewal. The buses on lines 66, 71, 73, 75 and 78 operated by Röhler are affected by the closure.
The "Gerabronn Schätzlesäcker" stop cannot be served and will be relocated to the "Gerabronn Friedhof" stop. Buses will from 14.11.2022 have to take another detour between Michelbach/Heide and Gerabronn (see at "L1036 Gerabronn - Blaufelden closed, 2nd phase").
In the Langenburg - Gerabronn - Blaufelden - Ilshofen area, the closure is currently causing major timetable deviations. In some cases, connections cannot be maintained. Due to the additional detour from November 14th, 2022 between Michelbach/Heide and Gerabronn, the travel time of the buses will be extended by up to 10-15 minutes!
We ask the passengers for their understanding.
As part of the road renovation project Blaufelden - Gerabronn - Langenburg, L1033, L1037 and L1036, the route will be completely closed to traffic in two phases until December 9th, 2022. This affects lines 71, 91 and 93 of the Röhler company, line 25 of the NVH and, in the second phase, additional the line S10 and the RufBus line R66.
Lines 71 and S10
The buses have to drive a wide detour between "Gerabronn Friedhof" and Langenburg. In Michelbach/Heide, a replacement stop is served on both sides at the junction of Steinkreuzstrasse and Ludwigsruher Strasse. All buses drive via Ludwigsruhe and Atzenrod due to detours. In Langenburg itself, the stops "Roseneck", "Gartenstrasse" and "War Memorial" cannot be served. The "Binselberg Ort" stop is also canceled due to detours. The "New School" in Langenburg, on the other hand, is served regularly.
Due to the significantly longer route, there are delays on route 71 in both directions. Sometimes connection losses are unavoidable.
The "Langenburg Roseneck" stop is not served. The stop "Langenburg Hauptstraße 117" is served as a substitute for the "Langenburg War Memorial" stop. In Michelbach/Heide, the alternative stop at the junction of Steinkreuzstrasse and Ludwigsruher Strasse will also be served if required.
Due to the extensive diversion, the connections in Gerabronn to the RB72 regional bus and in Eckartshausen to the trains cannot be guaranteed.
With course 25013, 7:20 a.m. from "Blaufelden Schule", the stops in Gerabronn and Michelbach/Heide are not served. "Langenburg Roseneck" and "War Memorial" are also omitted. Substitute stop is "Langenburg Hauptstraße 117" at 7:43 a.m.
Passengers are asked to understand the construction-related restrictions.
Due to the closure of a section of the turning lane on Haller Strasse in the direction of Tiefenbacher Strasse, StadtBus route 53 has to be diverted for one day on Monday, December 12, 2022. The reason for the closure is a pavement renovation.
In the direction of Stadtmitte -> LMG, the stops "Haller Straße/HBC", "Brunnenstraße/Sauerbrunnenstraße" and "Brunnenstraße/Dieselstraße" cannot be served. As a replacement for the journeys of line 53 in the direction of LMG, a replacement stop will be set up at the corner of Salzburger / Breslauer Straße (near the bakery).
Delays are to be expected due to the detour. Passengers are asked for their understanding.
Due to the Livestock Market on Wednesday, 14.12.2022, the central station "Brettheim Ort" can not be served in Rot am See - Brettheim from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Substitute stops are "Brettheim Arzt" at line 55, as well as "Brettheim Schule" by all other lines.
Until probably December 16th, 2022, the Degenbachstraße between Alexandersreut and Jagstheim/Burgbergsiedlung will be completely closed to traffic due to renovation work. Lines 61 and 61A of the Müller company are affected.
The "Degenbachsee" stop cannot be served during this time and will be canceled without replacement. The buses are diverted from Alexandersreuth in the direction of Burgbergsiedlung via Alexandersreuter Straße, which runs parallel to Degenbachstraße, and vice versa.
Probably until mid of December 2022, the "F.-Porsche-Straße" stop in Crailsheim will have to be relocated on both sides. The StadtBus-CR line 53 and line S1 are affected.
The replacement bus stops are in the parking bays at the level of the "Therapy Center". The reason for the relocation is a half-way road closure for cable laying and road rehabilitation.
Passengers are asked to understand that the bus stops have been relocated.
Until now probably December 23rd, 2022, the through road in Lautenbach (K2646) is completely closed to traffic due to pipeline work and the laying of house connections and road works. This affects journeys on lines 59 and 59A operated by Müller. The on-call buses on route R59 can continue to operate.
Coming from Rötlein, there is a diversion in the direction of Dinkelsbühl (and vice versa) via Oberdeufstetten Quellenstrasse, Wirtsgasse and Unterdeufstetten Dinkelsbühler Strasse. In Lautenbach, navigability for public transport in the direction of Wildenstein and vice versa is ensured. It is only blocked during the holiday periods. Lautenbach can therefore not be served during the holiday periods due to the lack of access and turning facilities and is no longer available.
As part of the construction work, the “Buckenweiler Ort” and “Storchenmühle” stops cannot be used on school days and will be relocated: The “Buckenweiler Ort” stop to the “Buckenweiler Abzweig” stop on the K2647, and the “Lautenbach Storchenmühle” stop to the “Lautenbach town center” stop.
In addition to the existing diversion rules, the Oberdeufstetter Straße area is also closed from November 21st, 2022. The diversion to the affected area of the road will take place from the Buckenweiler / Rötlener Straße intersection. From this point in time, the "Buckenweiler Ort" stop will be moved to the "Buckenweiler Abzweig" stop on the K2647, and "Lautenbach Storchenmühle" to the "Lautenbach Ortsmitte" stop.
Passengers are asked to understand that the bus stops have been relocated.
On public transport (train, bus, call-bus) FFP-2 masks must be worn. Children and young people from 6 to 17 years do not have to wear an FFP2 mask - a medical mask is still sufficient for them. Masks are generally compulsory for passengers aged 6 and over. At closed stops (e.g. underground), the mask requirement also applies if a minimum distance of 1.5 meters cannot be maintained permanently.
