 Lindau-Reutin - Lochau-Hörbranz [- Bregenz] (electrified)
ÖBB and SBB work to Lindau using electric locomotives. No DB electric stock is seen at Lindau because only the southern line to Bregenz is electrified. A small pool of SBB locomotives, specially-fitted with an ÖBB pantograph as well as the smaller Swiss one, are used on passenger trains between Zürich and Lindau.
Some IR-trains have been hauled by DB class 218 to Bregenz. Since December 2003 Railion works freight-services between Germany and Wolfurth (Austria) via Singen - Konstanz - St. Margrethen, using the Swiss section in open access. The amount of freight-trains via Lindau-Reutin has been decreased to two daily trains.
