    The first thing you notice about the 3rd generation of the ICE powered rail car train is the streamlined engineer's cabs with their dome or cupola shape. Behind the cabs are the lounges open to passengers that allow them a clear view down the track. In comparison to the previous ICE trains, this powered rail car train with its powered trucks distributed equally the length of the entire train provides improved power transmission and a more balanced distribution of traction and weight. Also distributed throughout the train is the electrical equipment such as transformers, power converters, and cooling systems. This equipment is are located under the car floors, thus ensuring that the passengers have the greatest amount of space and freedom to move about. The ICE 3"s improved power to weight ratio also gives it better acceleration. With a speed of 300 km/h or 206 mph, the ICE 3 will shorten travel times on newly constructed routes.
