ICE 4 Train at Miniatur Wunderland

Piko owner, Dr. René F. Wilfer, presents the modern ICE 4 multiple unit of DB AG, at Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg.

With its multitude of lovingly detailed and designed layouts, Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg offers the ideal stage for the new presentation of a Piko model. The model railway manufacturer from Sonneberg took advantage of this to present the Piko HO Scale Expert model of the ICE 4 for the first time to the press and specialist dealers from the region.

The invited guests were impressed by the usual realistic and detailed implementation of the new Piko model of the modern high-speed train.

The new DB AG BR 412/812 multiple units, which were jointly developed by Siemens and Bombardier for use in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, are powered by several power cars. The train configuration provides for various modular units from five-part to 14-part trains in double traction. This concept allows the train to be easily adapted to the individual requirements of the transport companies for the desired acceleration, speed and number of seats.

To date, DB AG has ordered 85 twelve- and 45 seven-car multiple units in the basic configuration, consisting of tractionless end and control cars, powered seating cars and an on-board bistro as well as non-driven seating, dining and service cars. The seven-car multiple unit has three powered cars and offers 456 seats over a length of 200 meters. A twelve-car multiple unit has six powered cars and 830 seats over a length of 346 metres. The maximum speed of the trains is 250 km/h. The design is based on the existing ICE fleet and has been further developed. Since December 2017, the first trains have been in regular service on the lines Hamburg-Würzburg, Stuttgart-Munich and Hamburg-Berlin-Munich.
