Prototype History:
The Intercity-Express (formerly InterCityExpress and commonly known as ICE (pronounce each letter individually)) is a system of high-speed trains predominantly running in Germany, Austria, Denmark, France, Belgium, and Switzerland. It is the highest service category of rail offered in Europe and is the flagship train of the German state railway, Deutsche Bahn. There are currently 259 trainsets in use.
The ICE rolling stock is made of 4 generations with different characteristics, but they all share the fact that each car is having two bogies, unlike the French TGV that is fitted with shared bogies between the intermediate cars.
  • ICE 1 (power car class 401) was built by a consortium of companies (Krauss-Maffei, Krupp, Henschel, AEG, ABB, Siemens). It has two power cars at each end and a number of intermediate cars. Given its single 15 kV 16-2/3 Hz AC power input, and a gauge larger than UIC standards, it can merely circulate inside Germany and a few other neighboring countries using this voltage.
  • ICE 2 (power car class 402) is a an improvement of ICE 1, but sharing the same limitations in terms of power input and gauge.
  • ICE 3 (class 403 / 406) based on Siemens Velaro high-speed train, is a departure from the previous ICE design, with a lower gauge and multiple power input capabilities that make it compatible with international travel, including the UK through the channel tunnel. Contrary to its predecessors, it has electrical motors spread over the whole consist instead of the more classical end power cars.
  • ICE 4 (class 412) is the latest generation, jointly built by Siemens and Bombardier. It started commercial operation in 2017. It will progressively replace the ageing ICE 1 and ICE 2.

- Data sheets of all ICEs

Road Name History:
Deutsche Bahn AG (abbreviated as DB, DB AG or DBAG) is a German railway company. Headquartered in Berlin, it is a private joint-stock company (AG), with the Federal Republic of Germany being its single shareholder. Deutsche Bahn describes itself as the second-largest transport company in the world, after the German postal and logistics company Deutsche Post / DHL, and is the largest railway operator and infrastructure owner in Europe. It carries about two billion passengers each year.

Deutsche Bahn (literally "German Railway" in German) came into existence in 1994 as the successor to the former state railways of Germany, the Deutsche Bundesbahn ("German Federal Railway") of West Germany and the Deutsche Reichsbahn ("German Empire Railway") of East Germany. It also gained ownership of former railway assets in West Berlin held by the Verwaltung des ehemaligen Reichsbahnvermögens (Administration of the Former Reichsbahn Assets).

Brand/Importer Information:
