Prototype information

At the end of October 1998 the third ICE generation, the ICE 3, was presented to the public for the first time at the Eurailspeed in Berlin. This new ICE was presented with a whole series of technological refinements and is contributing to the further shortening of travel times. With the ICE 3 the variety of locomotives and cars on the German Railroad, Inc. system is being expanded by one with a very striking appearance. The ICE 3's appearance more than anything else attracts attention with its streamlined front part that sets new standards with its aerodynamic shape. The most striking technical change is of course the propulsion concept. Whereas the propulsion for the ICE 1 and ICE 2 was located in the two powered end cars, in the new generation ICE 3 the entire propulsion system is now distributed under the car bodies.

In general, the ICE 3 will be operated as an eight-car train. Some of the trains are equipped for the German Railroad, Inc.'s power system and are designated as the class 403. The rest are equipped as four-system trains for cross border use in Europe. These powered rail car trains are designated as the class 406 and are intended chiefly for international routings. The interiors of the trains will also attract attention with their functional, appealing ambiance. Particularly attractive is the passenger area directly behind the engineer that allows a direct view into the cockpit and down the tracks.


c Digital locomotives with high-efficiency propulsion. Maximum speed and acceleration / delay are adjustable. Special motor with electronically enhanced load compensation or a compact bellshaped armature. Can be operated with Märklin transformers, in the Märklin Delta system or in the Märklin Digital system. 
d Digital decoder with additional, digitally controlled functions (f1, f2, f3 or f4) when operated with the 6021 Control Unit. The functions present depend on how the locomotive is equipped. Standard function (function) active during conventional operation.
