Train from Rothenburg to Baden-Baden

Has anyone taken the train from Rothenburg to Baden-Baden?

From looking at the Bahn website, the connections look really tight.

There's only 5 minutes for first train change at Steinach. Do you guys think these connections are manageable?

Thanks!

Steinach is a tiny station (1-2 platforms) in the middle of nowhere. 5 min to change are 4 min more than necessary.

The only reason for the train to Ansbach to stop in Steinach is the train coming from Rothenburg. If Steinach wouldn't be a "network node" no trains would there stop at all.

And as altamiro already wrote: from the viewpoint at least of a local commuter the 5 minutes for the transfer are definitly 4 minutes too much.
