Since the beginning of 2005, the (middle) Ruhr Valley Railway has been used as a railway for the regular tourist traffic on the Bochum-Dahlhausen-Hattingen (Ruhr) -Herbede-Wengern East-Hagen-Vorhalle-Hagen Hbf section, after the Railway Museum Bochum- Dahlhausen had operated a museum train service between Hattingen (Ruhr) and Wengern Ost or Oberwengern (until 1989). ,
In the tourist driving season, however, the Ruhr valley route is mainly used by historic steam trains of the railway museum Bochum-Dahlhausen or by nostalgic railbuses.
