Does anyone know when the Neubaustrecke from Leipzig to Erfurt is due to open? My Ball atlas suggests "2015". In June, I'm travelling on train IC 2250 11.11 from Leipzig Hbf. to Frankfurt Hbf. It's booked to take 72 minutes to travel from Leipzig to Erfurt non-stop. The following ICE takes quite a bit longer, but it has three intermediate stops including Weimar. Does this suggest that the IC travels via the new route?
