Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The 2nd German one is on the south southwest limits of Bullay in the Moselle valley (Bullay is in the background).  Shortly after the bridge this train will enter into a brief tunnel.  In ca. 1.5 hours the train will arrive at Gare Luxembourg.

I figured it could only be the Intercity (old InterRegio) in the Moseltal to Luxembourg because:

  1. The loco type is not normally one I saw on the main lines, but the fact it was using InterCity cars meant it was something somewhat important.  

  2. The train was too short to be running on the Main east of Frankfurt (the other major non-Rhine terraced wine hill region)

  3. No Intercities run on the right side of the Rhine (plus the river's way to narrow)

I took the website and traced along the Moselle valley to where the road and rail crossed the river on the same bridge.
