I was on a train in the stretch between Wiesbaden and Basel the other day and a fellow was asking me for help in assisting a passenger in a wheelchair to disembark at the next stop.
I had trouble understanding this, because he kept saying something about noise. I kept hearing the sound räusch, which made me think he was saying Geräusch, and I couldn't make head or tail of his sentence.
Finally, in retrospect, I wondered if he might have been saying raus.
Is there a region of Germany where the word raus can come out sounding like räusch?
If not, what else might he have been saying that would have had something to do with helping a passenger in a wheelchair to leave a train?
