Info about the original

Intercity 2 (IC 2) is the new name for the DB Fernverkehr AG TWINDEXX Vario® trains introduced following the timetable change on 13.12.2015. The TWINDEXX-Vario® is a further development of the tried-and-trusted double-deck platform from Görlitz. Each train has 468 seats, 70 of which are in 1st class, as well as 10 bicycle parking spaces. The trains have a maximum permissible speed of 160 km/h.

It was right back in 2010 that Bombardier Transportation received its first order for 27 five-part double-deck trains in combination with BR 146.5 locomotives. These were ordered under a framework contract for a total of 800 double-deck coaches that had already been concluded with DB AG in advance. Since then, 69 train units comprising a total of 328 individual coaches have been called off under this framework contract.

As part of DB Fernverkehr AG’s long-distance traffic concept, the IC 2 will gradually increase long-distance capacity and replace the existing IC trains. As of the beginning of 2019, IC 2 trains are already operating on the following routes:

Leipzig – Norddeich Mole

Dresden – Cologne

Koblenz – Norddeich Mole

Stuttgart – Singen

Karlsruhe – Nuremberg

Further routes are currently being planned.
