DB enters ICE 3neo into service
The ICE 3neo by Siemens Mobility was entered into service in Germany on Monday. Deutsche Bahn (DB) first used the new train between Frankfurt and Cologne. The debut of the ICE 3neo comes a mere 2,5 years following the placement of the order.
DB is investing 10 billion euros in new rolling stock in the current decade. Part of that investment is in 73 units of the ICE 3neo, which not only offer 32,000 additional seats but also enable speeds of up to 300 kilometres per hour.
When the new timetable comes into effect on December 11, the use of the ICE 3neo will be expanded to the route from Dortmund all the way to Munich using the new Wendligen–Ulm high-speed section. Starting from 2024, the ICE 3neo will also make its debut on international routes to Belgium and the Netherlands.
