Ab Sonntag, 9.12.2018 (Fahrplanwechsel), kommt es zu weiteren Ausfällen auf der Hohenlohe- und Tauberbahn. Grund dafür sind personelle Engpässe bei der DB Westfrankenbahn (Lokführermangel). Die Westfrankenbahn möchte die Ausfälle rechtzeitig bekanntgeben und durch einen gesicherten SEV (Schienen-Ersatzverkehr mit Bussen) ersetzen.
Die Ausfälle auf der Tauberbahn werden sich ab 27.12.2018 wegen der Weihnachtsferien noch einmal verändern. Bis dahin gibt es in unserem Bereich keine geplanten Ausfälle auf der Tauberbahn. Auf der Hohenlohebahn gelten die genanten Ausfälle auch in den Weihnachtsferien.
Die Änderungen in unserem Bereich im Detail (Zeitraum vom 9.12.2018 bis 6.01.2019):
Die Westfrankenbahn bittet die Ausfälle zu entschuldigen.
From Friday, 7.12. (start of operation), until Monday, 10.12.2018 (end in the course of the late afternoon) the Erlenhofer road must be fully closed in Fichtenberg. These include buses in line 8 and 8A-4.
Between the stop "Fichtenberg Krone" and the residential area north of the railway line, directly under the railway bridge, a house connection must be repaired in the Erlenhofer road urgently. As a result, during this period, the stop "Fichtenberg Krone" can not be approached in both directions.
Substitute stop is on all courses over Schelmenäcker "Fichtenberg Schule". The call-bus line R8 is not affected and stops at the regular stop "Fichtenberg Krone".
Passengers are asked for their understanding of this short-term stopover.
Until approximately 14.12.2018 the buses can not happen again because of construction work Braunsbach. The lines 31 and 71 of the company Röhler and the line 26 of the NVH drive a diversion over Arnsdorf, which means delays of up to 10 minutes. On Saturdays, line 26 of the NVH is split into two parts.
The blocking takes place this time in Braunsbach between the city hall and the local exit direction Schwäbisch Hall. Here extensive construction work takes place in the extension of Schlossstraße. The stop "Braunsbach Rabbinat" is approached by all courses. An additional stop will not be set up. On line 26, some of the departure and arrival times change (PDF).
On Saturdays, the NVH uses a shuttle bus between Braunsbach and Schwäbisch Hall. The departure time in Braunsbach is brought forward by 10 minutes. Between Braunsbach and Künzelsau the line RB 26 runs on schedule and ends / starts at the stop "Braunsbach Rabbinat". A direct change from/to the shuttle bus is not possible during the blockage. Passengers are requested to use the train from/to Waldenburg and the RegioBus line 7 from/to Künzelsau. The two journeys of the line 26 on Sunday as well as the RufBus journeys of the line R26 are likewise driven over the detour route, similarly to the Röhler lines.
The construction timetables of the local traffic Hohenlohekreis (line 26) can be found at www.nvh.de.
Since 5.11.2018 serve the line 16 from Schwäbisch Hall to Gaildorf in the Neue Refensteige outward between Reifenhofstraße and the roundabout a new stop. This stop is then approached with the exception of two trips in the direction of Gaildorf instead of the school center.
The only exceptions are courses 131 at 1:08 pm and noon at 4:08 pm on line 16, which, as in the past, are approaching the school center West, platform 4/1. In the opposite direction, the school center will continue to be stopped if necessary. In the long term, however, a new stop is planned here on the Neue Reifensteig to speed up the buses.
Due to this change in the route, the travel times of line 16 change slightly from 5.11.2018. Please note the new timetable of line 16 (line 16 PDF from 5.11.2018).
With the end of the construction work in the area Kerz/B14 there are changes in traffic management and associated with the bus stops opposite the stand before the construction. Affected by these are the lines 2, 3 and 9 of the city bus Schwäbisch Hall, as well as the lines 20 (Müller) and 32 (Röhler).
The former bus stop "Michelfeld Kerz/B14" (at Mc Donalds) was dissolved and replaced by two new stops. The stop "Michelfeld Kerz/B14" in the direction of Schwäbisch Hall is now in front of the former Kerz driveway. Buses on lines 20 and 32, coming from Michelfeld, stop at this new stop. The city buses of the lines 3 and 9 in the direction of Waldfriedhof and SHA-Hessental station now stop at a new stop "Kerz Modepark Röther", which is now opposite the already existing station of the same name. The departure times of the abandoned stop "Kerz/B14" apply there.
Buses on line 32 in the direction of Michelfeld, which pass through the Kerz, no longer stop at the stop "Kerz/B14", because they now have to exit at the new exit, ie behind the existing bus stop, onto the B14. However, these courses still serve the stop "Kerz Augenzentrum".
Otherwise, the stop "Kerz/B14" out of town is again served regularly by the lines 20 and 32. The "Kerz Modepark Röther" stop in the direction of "Augenzentrum" is also served regularly by the city buses as well as the buses of line 32, which pass through the Kerz.
Passengers are asked to understand the changes to the timetable resulting from the change in traffic routing in the bus for the buses. All new stops in the Kerz were built barrier-free. With the timetable change on 9.12.2018, the new timetables in the timetable book and here in the internet will be adapted accordingly.
After more than two years of closure, the L 1036 between Braunsbach and Orlach is again passable. The regular service of the company Röhler will reuse this track starting from Monday, 17.09.2018. This will change the timetables of the lines 31 and 71, the long detours can be omitted.
In Braunsbach, the stop "Braunsbach Rabbinat" will be reopened when the Orlacher Steige is put back into service. The substitute stop at the beginning of the village does not apply, the lines 31 and 71, as well as the line 26 of the NVH, stop again at the rabbinate. The "Braunsbach Elsenberg" stop can also be operated on all journeys over the Orlacher Steige.
The new timetables of lines 31 and 71 can be found at
