>>1029391>There is also the issue of train stations and cities bearing different names depending on the date of incorporation.
I can tell another story like that:
Wilferdingen and Singen are two villages that have existed since the 7th century.
1859, a railway line opened, with a station located between the two villages, named after both as Wilferdingen-Singen.
1973 came the german municipality reforms, which merged the two villages into one town to save administation costs. So none would feel "taken over", the name Remchingen was chosen for the new town (which was the name of a long abandoned village nearby). The town asked the then-federal german railway DB to change the station name to Remchingen too, but as they would have had to foot the bill for the renaming, they kept the old name.
1997 a tram-train line from the nearby city of Karlsruhe was opened using the exisiting rails. The AVG, the company operating these tram-trains, however decided to respect the wish of the town.
The result is that in the AVG tram-trains the station is announced as Remchingen, while in the DB regional trains the name Wilferdingen-Singen is used for the same station.
The AVG even rebuild parts of one platform to reduce the walking distance to connecting busses, signs on their platform say Remchingen, with Wilferdingen-Singen as a subtitle (pic), while the signs on DB's platforms use the name Wilferdingen-Singen.
Recently, the AVG seems to have given up this fight though, >>1025594
also shows the development. The station is in the lower right corner on the S5/R5 lines. Originally it only said Remchingen, then changed to Remchingen/Wilferdingen-Singen (on some maps even with S and R logos) and this year changed to Wilferdingen-Singen only.
