DB Intercity Express 3 Class 403
ICE3 is the second generation of the super high speed trains in Germany. The train design was altered so that now a uniform set of cars was used and no locomotives were used in either end. ICE3's have several build series, each one enhanced of the previous model.

Units built: 50 + 11 + 6, built in 1997 - late 2000s
Unit numbers: 403 x01 - x37, x51 - x63, 406 x01 - x13 (text on the sides 46xx), 51 - x54, x80 - x85
Maximum allowed speed: 320 - 330 km/h (199 - 205 mph)
Electrical systems: all 15kV 16,7 Hz, ICE3-M/MF (406) also 25 KV 50 Hz, 1500 V DC and 3000V DC
Usage: All around Germany on High Speed routes, the multivoltage units can also be seen in neigboring countries.

   Detailed information on DB class 403 units...


DB ICE3 M and ICE3 MF class 406
The first truly international ICE3 trainsets were ordered by Netherlands Railways NS as type ICE3 M and and DB as ICE3 MF. Of the latter some unit were new and some rebuilt of the class 403 for the French traffic.

Units built and rebuilt: 11 + 6, 1997 - 2008
Unit numbers: 406 x01 - x13, 406 x51 - x54, 406 x80 - x85

Class 407 Velaro-D

Deutsche Bahn class 407 / Siemens Velaro D
The newest Velaro trainsets will initially be allocated mostly as a surplus power to add capacity within other ICE train pools. The new trains are thoroughly improved from the previous generations, although the outside appearance remains strikingly similar at first looks.

Units built: 15, 2010 - current production model
Unit numbers: 407 x01 -
Maximum allowed speed: 320 km/h (199 mph)
Electrical systems: all 15kV 16,7 Hz, 25 KV 50 Hz, 1500 V DC and 3000V DC
Usage: All around Germany and international high speed routes, mainly to France (Paris, Marseille), Belgium (Brussels) and Holland (Amsterdam), possibly U.K. (London) later.

Similar units will also be manufactured for use at Eurostar as E320 trainsets. Not surprisingly, these are targeted partly for the same routes the Deutsche Bahn has in mind.

The German class 401 ICE-1 locomotives led trains form the ICE1 EMUs. These feature highest speed at 280 km/h (174 mph), at the brink of the super high speed class and matching closely the first generation French TGV's speed. Just like in France the locomotives is on both ends of the train, but the units can not be run in multiple. But would you really have a need to run in multiple a train with 14 cars? Unlike the French articulated (for safety reasons) building the structure was designed so that trailers could easily be added or removed from the consist, so every car has it's own bogies. This design has both advantages and disadvantages, the main issues being frlexibility and safety.
   
The ICE1 trains have been very susccessful in their traffic, although the nonarticulated structure has also meant added danger to the passengers when accidents happed for example due to the failure of an axle. Therefore the axles of all railvehicles in Germany are currently inspected on regular base and defective axles changed before any real danger occurs.
 
The ICE1 train sets class 801 - 804  14 trailers have so far gone through one major refurbishing phase.

The latest in high tech super high speed train family is the Siemens mobility DB class Velaro-D EMU. Similar EMUs are also being prepared for use at Eurostar between United Kingdom and continental Europe.

The DB class 407 units are almost ready from the production lines and the class certification is on the way right now. The process has taken more time than estimated, but this in not unusual in case of any new train type, especially the high speed ones. Initially the class 407 will be used to add to ranks of the classes 403 and 406 serving Germany and later the trains will be directed to international routes where they were intended originally. With demand ofr super high speed travel rising even within Germany it is doubtful if these train will provide enough capacity for international pooling. More likely another batch has to be ordered for this purpose.

Keep your eyes open in Germany for now, it might well be that you see one of these units with straight roof line beginning at the end of the first coach and up and down opening nose cones instead of the sideways opening mechanism.
