Two of the new ones "kissing". The Br 407 or Siemens Velaro D is a 320 km/h fast electric multiple unit, which by the DB is marketed as "neuer ICE3", new ICE 3, athough there are also two other older trains known by the same name ICE 3. These new ones were built 2009-2012, but came into real service only fully in 2014. It is a 200,7 m long train, which is capable of running not only within Germany, but also on routes for example to Paris in France.

The DB class 406 or ICE 3M (M stands for multiple electric systems) trains are a more modern version of the third generation of ICE trains and they are used especially on the Germany to Paris, France services. This is a German DB class 406 on its way from Paris to somewhere in Germany stopping at the Liége (Lüttich) station in Belgium. Picture 10.7.2015 by Ilkka Siissalo.

The same DB ICE 3M leaving Liége towards Germany. The poor beautiful train has suffered from an awful graffiti attack on the side of the second coach from rear and there's also some ugly smudge at the rear front. Picture 10.7.2015 by Ilkka Siissalo.

The first generation of the ICE trains was a 14 wagons long rake with a specifically designed locomotive with just one driver's cab at both ends. It was designated Br 401. This is a Br 401 train in full speed by Amstetten at the Geislinger Steige. Picture 8.7.2015 by Ilkka Siissalo.
