the Nassaui Rhine and Lahn railway company, starting from 1861 Nassaui state railway, continues to build the first line in this area of upper Lahn stone in the Lahn valley upward under substantial difficulties 1858 to bath Ems, 1860 toNassau and finally 1862 to Limburg. In the same year also the distance prominent from Wiesbaden Rhine downward reached the station upper Lahn stone and 1864 Niederlahnstein.

Here she found 1869 the connection to the Rheini railway company far after Neuwied - Cologne. The transitionover the Rhine only 1879 the Prussian state railway added von Niederlahnstein after Koblenz and the evasion of upper Lahn stone .

It took also the Aartalbahn Diez - customs office in enterprise, which was extended 1894 toward bath Schwalbach to 1870.
