In the Emsland region, a test stretch is being developed from Rhein via Spelle to Freren, for the purpose of research and further development of the wheel/rail system. In this article the organizational preconditions, the problems arising, the functions of the test line, and the resulting planning, as well as the present-day situation, are described. Further explanations refer to the rolling-test stand at Munchen-Freimann, to the permanent way test line Dachau-Munchen-Karlsfeld, and to the test vehicle.
