That's a diagram of Stadtbahn (tram) and S-Bahn services in and around
Stuttgart.  It doesn't include "Nahverkehr" in the sense of the DB trains
of a lower category than ICs.  "Nahverkehr" trains are like those between
Stuttgart Hbf and Singen, passing through Boeblingen on the way.

I think you're confused here about what a "Nahverkehrszug" is.  It's a
mainline train which needs platform space, yet isn't an S-Bahn.  It
carries a label such as "RB" or "RE".  I suspect a lot of councillors who
voted for this scheme were suffering the same confusion.  I agree, 160
trains a day would fit comfortably into an 8 platform station.  600
trains won't.

I don't think you travel by train very much, somehow.
