Thank you for you response. Maybe one day, especially for those in

It's fun to see the overlap between the Dutch dataset and the DB dataset,
there are ICE IC and RB's chasing each other. AVV is in there duplicated
I noticed on Sunday that the shape generation was a bit more sophisticated
than mine, since it did pick on the correct route for a planned deviated IC
Berlin->Amsterdam, which took a longer route between Deventer and Almere
