73 ICE 3 NEO are ordered

In the coming year, a new night line Prague and Zurich will connect via Berlin, Leipzig and Erfurt, the train announced a few weeks ago. "The existing night train Zürich-Hamburg changes its route from the timetable change in the north and then also binds Bruchsal, Heidelberg, Darmstadt, Hanau, Verden and Nienburg to international night train traffic," it said at the time.

The currently great unpunctuality of the trains is likely to change all of these measures, said Naumann. "The infrastructure just does not exist." Numerous construction sites braked long -distance traffic this year. In some months almost every second ICE and IC was late.
