ICE: High-tech on Speed

The ICE train – epitome of high-speed traffic in Germany – is now in its 4th generation. Together with its predecessors, the ICE makes its tracks at the Traumwerk: classic old-style electric locomotives, standard series E10, E40, E41 and E50, diesel locomotives from V60 to V200 and classic steam locomotives such as 01, 23, 41, 44 and 50 series. Traxx series in electric and diesel versions are also on display.

In addition, a diesel locomotive is represented with the Herkules.

Croc on Tracks

Arguably every railroad fan knows the Crocodile. The Swiss classic among the mountain locomotives is already 100 years old and at home on all gauges. In the Swiss section of the model railway system, you will also encounter RAm and RAe Tee’s and the typical Re 4/4 and Re 6/6 models, as well as the modern Lok 2000 as 460.
