The ICE-T are electric multiple units consisting of seven (class 411) or five cars (class 415). They have a comparatively low maximum speed of 230 km/h, as they are less intended for use on high-speed lines, but on upgraded regular rail tracks. Since these have more and narrower track curves than the high-speed lines, they were equipped with a tilting technique. The tilting of the car body by up to eight degrees allows an increased speed in curves. The first trainsets were inaugurated in 1999.
