Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Bavarian Forest Railway links the heart of the Bavarian Forest around Regen and Zwiesel to Plattling and the Danube valley on one side, and the Czech Republic through Bayerisch Eisenstein on the other. In the Danube valley it forms a junction with the Nuremberg-Regensburg-Passau long distance railway and, to the south, regional lines to Landshut and Munich. In 1867 the Bavarian state began first investigating the possibility of a railway link from Plattling via Deggendorf, Regen und Zwiesel to the Bohemian border to provide transportation for the industries there. The Bavarian-Austrian state treaty of 21 June 1851 envisaged a junction with the Bohemian railway network at Eisenstein in addition to the existing connexions to Bohemia at Furth im Wald and Passau. The Pilsen-Priesen railway was prepared to extend their Pilsen-Dux line as far as the border at Eisenstein.
