Are these train transfer times reasonable?

I am taking a train from Rothenburg to Prague and the connection times are as mentioned. I am concerned the 4 minutes connection times ( the time my train arrives to the time my next train departs ) are not reasonable. The platforms are not adjacent

1. Rothenburg ob der Tauber to Steinach(b Rothenburg ob der Tauber) on RB58888

4 MINUTES transfer time

2. Steinach(b Rothenburg ob der Tauber) to Ansbach on RB58109

4 MINUTES transfer time

3. Ansbach to Nürnberg Hbf on IC2063

10 minutes walk

4. Nürnberg Hbf, Bahnhofvorpl. Hauptausgang

Usually, when you have a transfer time of 4 minutes, all you have to do is walk across the platform and your train will be waiting on the other track. The DB website doesn't give you any connections you can't make.

By the way - sometimes, I manage to make a connection that doesn't even exist, officially. If you run, you can sometimes catch a train which the website won't even display any more because the connection time is too short. Feels good to catch one of those trains. :-)

These are definitely feasible. I've done the first two with luggage and a bad ankle. They are very small stations.
