Tell me, oh wise one, where are the platforms at which the 426
Nahverkehrszuege will arrive and depart?  Might it possibly be that they
will be using the 8 underground platforms too?  If so, there will be
around 590 trains per day using these 8 platforms, a much higher density
than Nuremberg's 450 trains on 21 platforms.
