Only 25 kV? So Alstom does not want to sell AGV to Germany?

I don't think the German government would buy anything else than an ICE.

I don't think the Americans want to reroute the North Eastern Corridor through Germany, it's a bit of a detour.

The train companies buy the trains.

Isn't the Deutsche Bahn still run by the state? If not then mea culpa for the mistake.

The DB is a state owned but privately-run company. The state even tries to privates part of the company for awhile now, but that hasn't yet resulted in actually selling part of the DB-AG stock to 3rd parties.

When it comes to ordering rolling stock it's the DB that makes the decision, not the state. But it's not a big secret that the DB and the German railway industry have very strong ties.

Yes, but other railway companies, like SNCF for example, are free to operate trains in Germany.

The name "ICE" (Intercity-Express) is exclusive to the DB that's all.

The name "IC" (Intercity or Inter-City in the original) is a creation of British Rail as far as I know. DB adapted it.

In Germany you are free to run your own trains, Veolia does that for example.

Yes ..they couldn't even manage to translate Intecity (IC) in the Italian equivalent Intercitta' (IC).

And they don't even realise that Intercitta' (IC) = Intercity (IC).

I tested a clerk in 1997, at Milan Central Station....the clerk did not know that intercity means only intercitta'..

Cheers......

To me it reminds me of a shoe tree like my Dad used for his dress shoes. Anyway, it's OK looking, better from the front or from a distance, 3/4 view does it no compliments.
