Yeah we know that Suburbanist don't like "unsafe railway tracks", it's not worth to turn this into a discussion over and over and over again.


Btw, this is not really an S-Bahn line.... yet... well maybe never.

With 1 train per hour plus some extra trains using a 2 car DMU during the peak hours it's not really what you call a City-Line. The only reason why it has become an S-Bahn is because the line should be electrified by 2013. Then the line will be integrated with the S2 service, with 1 S2 train per hour that will be extended from Dachau to Altomuster. Therefor it has temporary become the S-Bahn line A, just to let people know that things are going to change. But even then it will remain just a small local railway, that just happens to be directly connected with the S-Bahn.


And as you can see in the video, there's no sign of the electrification right now (the video is dated 16.04.2012). It has to be seen if the electrification will actually be completed by 2013.

It's not just Lufthansa, several airlines have code share agreements with Deutsche Bahn like American Airlines, Qantas & China Airlines.

The DB also has deals with many airline including TUIfly (the operator of these 2 planes) with the Rail&Fly ticket. This ticket takes air passengers from the selected airlines to and from the airport (all German airports and even Basel and Amsterdam) from any railway station in Germany for €29.

"Zug zum Flug" (the train to the flight) is the slogan for this ticket, so the airplane ads are promoting this Rail&Fly ticket.

Then there's the codeshare connections of Qantas, American, China Airlines and some others on ICE trains from FRA to major German cities.
And additionally there's the AIRail service, a cooperation of DB and Lufthansa between FRA and Köln as well as Stuttgart. Those trains, where some seats are blocked for LH passengers, even have an LH code, and the served stations Köln, Siegburg and Stuttgart have their own IATA-Codes as the trains are to be booked like ordinary flights. AIRail even resulted in the cancellation of all flights between FRA and CGN, on FRA-STR there are only four daily flights left.

Cool! Didn´t know about this close cooperation between DB and all the airlines!

Thank you two for this information!

SNCF does the same with their TGV trains. You can see this if you book a plane ticket at for example KLM/Air France: when you choose to depart from Brussels, it's not unlikely that your trip will contain a TGV to Schiphol or Charles de Gaulle - with an AF flight number, even!

Germany will have 770 IC coaches modernized by 2014 according to their press announcement:

Quote:
Deutsche Bahn: Startschuss für die Modernisierung der Intercity-Wagen

Die Deutsche Bahn wird bis Ende 2014 rund 770 ihrer Intercity-Wagen umfangreich modernisieren und den Fahrkomfort für die Reisenden erheblich verbessern. Heute wurden im Werk Neumünster der DB Fahrzeuginstandhaltung die ersten modernisierten Intercity-Wagen vorgestellt. Rund 250 Millionen Euro investiert die DB, um die Wagen für ihren Einsatz bis 2023 fit zu machen. "Auch mit dieser Investitionsmaßnahme setzen wir die Modernisierung unserer Fahrzeugflotte konsequent fort. Wir machen das Unternehmen stark für eine nachhaltige Zukunft. Davon profitieren das System Bahn und insbesondere unsere Kunden", erklärte Dr. Rüdiger Grube, Vorstandsvorsitzender der DB AG. Die Modernisierung umfasst komfortsteigernde Maßnahmen wie die Erneuerung von 46.000 Sitzen mit Lederbezug in der 1. Klasse und Velourstoff in der 2. Klasse sowie den Einbau von Steckdosen. Auch Wandverkleidungen, Tische und etwa 42.000 Quadratmeter Teppich werden ausgetauscht. Die Bistrowagen erhalten eine neue Ausstattung. Zusätzlich wird in dem Servicewagen das Kleinkindabteil mit neuem Dekor versehen und der Bereich für mobilitätseingeschränkte Reisende vergrößert. Außerdem wird die Anzahl der Wagen, in denen Fahrräder mitgenommen werden können, von heute 129 auf 163 Fahrzeugen gesteigert. Technische Maßnahmen sollen die Verlässlichkeit der Fahrzeuge steigern. Diese konzentrieren sich auf die Bereiche Drehgestelle, Bremsen, Türen, Energieversorgung und Klimaanlagen. Über einer Million Fertigungsstunden sind insgesamt für die komfortsteigernden und technischen Umbauarbeiten kalkuliert. Eine besondere Herausforderung des Projekts stellt die Vielzahl an unterschiedlichen Wagentypen dar: Die Wagenflotte besteht aus 34 Bau- und Unterbauarten mit unterschiedlichen Varianten. Die Fahrzeuge sind teils 40 Jahre alt und kommen aus den Beständen der Deutschen Bundesbahn und der Deutschen Reichsbahn. Eine standardisierte Modernisierung ist somit kaum möglich. So wurden beispielsweise zu Beginn des Projektes für alle Varianten individuelle Zeichnungen für das neue Innenraumdesign angefertigt. Die Ingenieurleistungen erfolgt durch die DB Systemtechnik. Mit der Umsetzung sind die Werke Neumünster, Kassel und Nürnberg der DB Fahrzeuginstandhaltung beauftragt. Zum Fahrplanwechsel im Dezember 2012 ist geplant, die erste Intercity-Linie Stuttgart–Köln–Hamburg, komplett auf die modernisierten Wagen umzustellen (Pressemeldung Deutsche Bahn, 25.04.12).
This is what the coaches will look like afterwards:

Will the new Talent 2 also be used for the RB25 line between Köln-Hansaring and Marienheide?

The Talent 2 is an electric trains, and the line doesn't have any wires. Therefor the Talent 2 cannot be used.

For now the current Diesel Talent 1 trains will still be used. From Dezember 2013 they will be replaced by new diesel trains by the 2nd generation Alstom Coradia LINT trains.

LINT 54

Yes, I remember. Nice is slogan (you see on this picture Polish version - "Kolej porusza kibiców") which on other side of this EU44-005 is in German: Die Bahn bewegt Fans. Which I believe both in Polish and German can be understood in two ways.

You may see it in action from other side here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etuBefDOeBw

You may see in this video EU44-005 (manufactured by Siemens - http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siemens_ES64U4) painted as above which is pulling BWE train (Berlin-Warszawa-Express - http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berlin-Warszawa-Express). Rare situation.

I don't know if this has been posted before, but... good ol' 218s still got it!

Please prepare your woofers before listening to this...




This user always posts high quality video from Southern Germany and Switzerland.


BTW, I'm very curious about the project for the new quadri-engined diesel locos.

The new diesel locomotives for the DB will be the Bombardier Traxx DE.
http://www.bombardier.com/wps/portal...01260d8016ee96




The DB has a framework agreement with Bombardier for 200 diesel locomotives, this means that the DB can order them in smaller batches when they need them and also with different specifications. They will be replacing all the older mainline diesel locomotives, the BR 215-225 & BR 232-234.

The 1st batch will be 20 locomotives that will be used on regional passenger trains around Frankfurt (M) and Munich. The first one will enter service in mid 2013.
