A year later, this route was lengthened as TEE 19/20 to Frankfurt. Starting in 1966, Brussels was the turnaround point. Between 1971 and 1978 the train ran as TEE 20/21 in Germany as far as Nürnberg. 1979 was the last year in service for the “Saphir”; the route Frankfurt – Brussels was run on schedule as in the past in 5 hours.
