These high-speed trains are the flagship of the Deutsche Bahn rail network.  Beginning with test trails in 1985, the ICE network was officially inaugurated on 29 May 1991.  The ICE 3 trains are licensed for 330 km/h (210 mph) and have reached 368 km/h (228.66 mph)) on trial runs.  By distributing its 16 traction motors underneath the whole train, there is no locomotive car so passengers can sit along the entire length of the train.  Nikon D7100 w/18-200mm, processed with Aperture.
