The brand ICE is loud German train one of the most successful in Germany, they achieved in Germany a reputation of almost 100 percent. With the introduction of the ICE travel time decreased, for example, between Hamburg and Frankfurt am Main 62 minutes between Hamburg and Stuttgart – using both new lines – was the travel time back even 115 minutes. Little or no travel time savings achieved by the train, however, the existing network. So the journey time fell to the Fils Valley Railway between Ulm and Stuttgart, compared to the features of the TEA – and intercity system, only five minutes.

For the first time pure Non smoking and smoking carriages were created by ICE on German rails without the previously usual separation inside the car. The marshaling geared to the Intercity trains: Between the cars of the first and second class was a dining car classified. As of 1995, two wrong ICE 1 sets as so-called idea trains between Hamburg and Basel or Stuttgart. On the trains were among other mobile amplifier to use, reusable bottles in the dining car and concepts to the Internet in train tested. The trains ran later than regular ICE trains without trials. From May 1995 onwards reached the ICE trains, on the ICE line 3, for the first time runs regularly between their maximum speed of 280 km / h.

Furthermore, these trains were from the summer schedule in 1997 at the newly established ICE line 10 inserted between Berlin and Cologne (in off position to Frankfurt am Main), starting with the winter schedule 1997/98 beyond every two hours to Bonn. However, since the control cars were not delivered or accepted from the beginning, put the train on this line first, two half moves to a long train together.

Simultaneously with the ICE 3 were similarly embodiment, the tilting trains ICE T (electric, five- and seven-part in variant) and two years later the ICE TD (diesel-electric, four-part) develops. They have been specially designed for use on routes that are not upgraded for high-speed traffic, for example on the winding roads in Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Hesse and Thuringia. Here, the trains cover as a motorcyclist up to 8 ° in the curves and allows them to be passed up to 30% faster (so-called. Arc speeding). The electric version is approved for 230 km / h. The trains were originally intended for the IC traffic, but were later lifted into the ICE-rank due to the shorter travel times and high equipment standards. Originally possessed the traits on bicycle compartments were replaced as part of the introduction to the ICE traffic through further seating. Due to the shortened by inspection intervals availability of trains from October 2008 to June 2009 was limited. It perverse locomotive-hauled IC trains as a substitute. Trains run since then no longer bow fast, the travel times have thus become much longer. Plan to make the trains run arc quickly by incorporating robust axes, have not yet been realized.

The diesel-powered ICE TD that from June 2001. came on the routes Nuremberg-Dresden and Munich-Zurich used, however, there were initially susceptible to interference and according to the Deutsche Bahn AG in operation as too expensive, so they were temporarily not in use. Since Easter 2006 but they are used as reinforcing and load trains again. As of December 9 2007, she also replace between Hamburg and Aarhus, as well as the ” crow flies “between Hamburg and Copenhagen, the Danish part MF. In each case, a two-piece train pair is bound by or to Berlin. The train is it divided in Hamburg Central Station for the two Danish arrival stations or merged back towards Berlin. With this connection, it is the first time since the fall of 1997, again a direct connection between Berlin and Copenhagen and at the same time two links of Denmark directly into the German ICE network.

Since the end of 2004 supplement 28 seven-car trains from the second series (ICE T2) the electrical ICE tilting train fleet. Compared to the first series of the restaurant area was among other things replaced by a bistro, the video / audio program away and abolished the footrests in the second grade.
