ICE/IC: Spot the Differences

ICE (InterCity Express) and its sister IC (InterCity) would make regular appearances on my future layout. A common sight in Germany, it takes keen sight to spot the differences in various ICE classses (Baureihe in Deutsch); between ICE 1 and 2, variations in ICE 3 and even rarer sight of ICE (MET).

Hope these drawings help you.

In 2014 we will see the new IC double-level coaches from Bombardier. Brawa will offer this model in H0- and N-scale coaches next year.

Arnold will produce BR 146.5 in the matching ICE livery to pull these double-deckers.

  1. Your ICE 3 interiors show a 2nd class layout but the side drawings show the 1st class end unit.

    The ICE 1 also comes in two versions: one with single and one with double pantographs. Your side and top views show different versions.

    • Hi Misha,
      Bingo for your sharp eyes.

      1. Yes, I have taken the other end of the ICE 3 and put it side-by-side of 1st Class end unit.

      2. ICE 1 comes in two versions – 2 pantos for Germany/Austria-Swiss operation and 1 panto for Germany operation. Yes, the top view shows different pantos.
