Is there an easy way to see which trains qualify for the €9 supertick? I guess at the station, you could look at the board where it should be mentioned.. will conductors be understanding if you hop an incorrect train? gotta practice my couldn't-be-more-ignorant facial expression and do some pre-weeping exercises.

Haha, I would focus more on taking the right trains. Make sure it's either S-Bahn, BVG or, if it's Deutsche Bahn, the train number has an RE in it. IC and ICE are not allowed. Rule of thumb: Red double-decker OK; white single-level, probably not.

Thanks for the tips. After some test runs, we’re going to head to Eisenach, along the Regio way. Will have to figure out each state’s regional train-net. And I suppose any non-German marked train will be a no-go. Getting to the Allgæu should be interesting.
