That's a diagram of Stadtbahn (tram) and S-Bahn services in and
around Stuttgart.  It doesn't include "Nahverkehr" in the sense of
the DB trains of a lower category than ICs.  "Nahverkehr" trains are
like those between Stuttgart Hbf and Singen, passing through
Boeblingen on the way.

has absolutely nothing to do with reduction to 8 platforms, silly.

I think you're confused here about what a "Nahverkehrszug" is.  It's
a mainline train which needs platform space, yet isn't an S-Bahn.
It carries a label such as "RB" or "RE".  I suspect a lot of
councillors who voted for this scheme were suffering the same
confusion.  I agree, 160 trains a day would fit comfortably into an 8
platform station.  600 trains won't.

I don't think you travel by train very much, somehow.

Ummmm... I think I've missed the boat or... train or whatever.

Sincerely,
RJack :)
