So do they terminate the joint venture?

I am pretty sure they operate ICE-T trains on the Munich-Vienna route.

Steve87, no they will not. The route for the ICE-T is Vienna-Frankfurt. I don't think there are direct ICE connections between Vienna and Munich atm. ICE routes 22, 24, 26 all go to Dortmund, which means you need to change once along the way to reach Munich.

No matter what, ÖBB and DB, in the near future will not compete. The state-owned railway companies in Europe try to not hurt each other too much for the time being and mainly compete with the privately owned railway companies.

There are two EC, one EN and one ICE daily services between Munich and Vienna. This particular ICE service uses ICE-1 trains.

ICE-T trains belonging to the DB/ÖBB-pool are used for the six daily Vienna-Frankfurt(-Dortmund) and one daily Vienna-Bregenz services.

The first 23 Railjets would run between Budapest and Munich (via Vienna) and between Vienna and Bregenz (with some services continuing to Zurich).

No problem. Do you happen to know what frequency they intend to offer on the first Railjet line? Maybe one train every two hours like between Vienna and Frankfurt?

Unfortunately I don't know that. I checked all the information ressources I know and I couldn't find anything about it. However it looks like RJ will replace EC on those lines, so in the near future we will probably see a RJ every two hours. However I doubt there will be enough units ready till december 2008 and the initial frequency will be much lower.

So far I've only seen concept art and some photos from the factory, where the interior wasn't finished yet.



I'll try to get hold of more photos!

New Austrian high-speed record with a railjet train: 275km/h! Compared with some other European countries it doesn't seem too much, but bear in mind that so far the fastest Austrian trains only manage 200km/h and that only on some new highspeed tracks:

Railjet stellt Geschwindigkeitsrekord auf

Wien - Der ÖBB-Zug "railjet" hat einen Geschwindigkeitsrekord aufgestellt. Eine vierteilige Garnitur war am Samstag zwischen St. Valentin und Amstetten mit 275 Stundenkilometern unterwegs, berichteten die Bundesbahnen am Montag in einer Aussendung. Der Hochgeschwindigkeitszug wird seit mehr als zwei Monaten getestet und soll ab Dezember diesen Jahres Wien mit München und Budapest verbinden.

Bereits am Pfingstwochenende hatte der Hochgeschwindigkeitszug Schnellfahrten mit 255 Sachen absolviert. "Diese Fahrten waren absolut beeindruckend und verliefen völlig problemlos", berichtete Gabriele Lutter, Vorstandsdirektorin ÖBB-Personenverkehrs AG.

Der "railjet" wird sei Ende April geprüft und hat dabei über 20.000 Kilometer in Österreich, Deutschland und der Schweiz zurückgelegt. Dem Zug stehen nun noch Schall- und Störströmungsmessungen und ein Test der Klimakammer bevor. Ab dem Fahrplanwechsel im Dezember 2009 soll er auf der Strecke Wien-Salzburg-Innsbruck-Feldkirch-Bregenz respektive Zürich unterwegs sein. Bis 2013 werden die Passagiere von Wien nach Innsbruck nur mehr etwas mehr als vier Stunden fahren, nach Salzburg nur mehr zwei Stunden und 15 Minuten. (APA)
some more pictures from various tests that are currently held all over Austria, Switzerland and Germany:

You can get prices by asking the german web site, www.bahn.de .
I tried and got the following results, for a Munich-Vienna journey :

Regular fare (exchangeable/refundable ticket) 79,40 €. With the normal
TCV price at 71,90 €, that's only 7.5 € more expensive, which looks ok.

Special fare (not exchangeable nor refundable ticket) normally available
@ 29 € but that tariff was already sold out for saturday, march 28, i.e.
almost 3 months away, so the allocation for this tariff must be quite tiny.

Special fare in first class, same conditions as above, @ 49 €.

What I don't know, and would like to know, is whether Interrail passes
can be used on those trains.
