The ICE (InterCity-Express) is the flagship high speed train of the German state railway, Deutsche Bahn. The first ICE trains were the ICE1, operating between Hamburg and Munchen in 1991. This service primarily serviced cities but also was expanded to reach Germany’s neighboring countries.

These first ICE series trains set the standard for the appearance of later ICE trains with their basic white body and red stripe, the signature colors of the DB.

The prototype that will be released is the latest version which debuted in December 2015, revealed as part of the ICE 25th Anniversary ceremony. Since then it has undergone speed tests and has been approved for operation on the Hamburg-Munchen & Munchen-Stuttgart routes beginning in December 2017. The ICE4 has a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) operating as a 12 car consist.
