Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Minor villages but DB has to stop there anyway.

One solution is to forget to stop there. Apparently, ICE drivers have done this several times recently with Wolfsburg.

Heh. I tend to view forgotten stops as a sign of ever declining management attention to oversight (and ever declining numbers of high management using the own company's means of traffic). I can't remember a single missed stop on a train I rode until an occasion two years ago. Then it was on a limited stop commuter train, on a line where there are also "zoned" commuter trains that don't stop at all until the first major town; so I assumed the driver was momentarily confused about what type of train he was driving (he stopped a kilometre later for passengers to get off in the bushes). But this year, it happened three more times, twice at the same station and once on another commuter line...
