Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Bonn-Oberkassel train ferry was a German train ferry operated by the Rhenish Railway Company from 1870 to connect its right and left Rhine railways. It was the last of six train ferries to begin operations across the Rhine in Germany and the second to last to close. After the take over of the Bonn-Cologne Railway Company by the Rhenish Railway Company on 1 January 1857, it built the left Rhine railway in sections to Bingerbr ck. With the opening of the last section on 15 December 1859, it connected to the Hessian Ludwig Railway to South Germany. In 1864, it built the Pfaffendorfer Rhine bridge below the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress and the bridge over the Lahn at Oberlahnstein to connect with the Nassau Rhine Railway of the Nassau State Railway at Niederlahnstein, completed on 3 June 1864, creating a second railway next to the Rhine from the Rhineland to southern Germany, now known as the Left Rhine line.show more
