Built by Siemens as part of their Velaro family of trains, the ICE 3 is the third generation of ICE trains first introduced in 1991. The 400-ton ICE 3 has a top speed of 320km/h (199mph) thanks to its aluminium construction and 8,000kW power output, significantly shortening journey times and improving the passenger experience.
1972 MARK 2 STOCK
The 1972 Stock that operates on the Bakerloo Line today is the ‘Mark 2’ variant, which was the 2nd batch originally ordered to fill the Northern Line gap (and they even did some time on the Jubilee) however they have been operating exclusively on the Bakerloo Line since 1987.
The benchmark for modern railroad freight motive power in North America today is 4,000+ horsepower, A.C. traction, and six axles – and it was largely the landmark General Electric AC4400CW, introduced in 1993, that helped establish that standard.
DB BR 442 TALENT 2
Built by Bombardier and introduced in 2009, the successor to the ‘Talent’ was put into service by Deutsche Bahn to replace older EMU types and loco-hauled trains on both S-Bahn and Regio services.
The Electro-Motive “Geep” first appeared on the North American railroad scene in 1949, in the form of the classic GP7. Over the following decades, more than 20 different variations of iconic “Geeps” were produced by Electro-Motive, and among the most successful and versatile of this landmark line of locomotives has been the GP38-2.
The 3,000-horsepower, six-axle (C-C) SD40-2, as part of Electro-Motive’s “Dash 2” line, made its debut in 1972. Through 1986, Electro-Motive produced nearly 4,000 SD40-2s, making the locomotive one of the most successful diesel locomotives of all time.
