Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It does underline though that the real problem is not wayside stations and mountains, but the half-measures in the form of upgraded (yet not cheap) sections at the Cologne and Frankfurt ends. Another thing is the overall short distance in comparison with f.e. France, where you still have long slow sections leaving Paris or entering Lyon – methinks once Frankfurt-Mannheim is built, even if not bypassing Mannheim, there will be some decent Cologne-Mannheim times.
