Ansbach and Steinach are small stations. There is no need for longer change times. If you have walking difficulties, tell the controller in the first train beforehand and s/he will call ahead.

The only point of the station in Steinach is the change to branch line in Rothenburg - there is no town it serves, just a rail junction.

Besides, what is the alternative? If you don't manage a connection you have to wait for the next train. Since the trains run hourly on most lines there is no use in starting earlier.

1. Treuchtlingen track 1 -> track 7

Doable (otherwise the timetable would not suggest the connection at all). But indeed rather tight.

2. Ansbach track 2 -> track 3

These 2 tracks share the same platform. Thus no problem at all.

Thank you Abalada, when you say these two tracks share the same platform, what does that mean exactly.

The link to the station report is excellent, how do I get the station report for other stations, and also for

D Bahn.

Thank you

Track 2 and Track 3 at Ansbach are on the same island.
