Original post:

Set number 4109 – this is an ex-Westbahn-KISS double-deck train in the livery of DB Fernverkehr. 4110 009 is the first train we see in light grey, dark grey, and the well-known red banner. The train has all the new DB-icons and as branded as ‘IC’. The window areas got a black mask.

This unit is the first of a batch of nine that belongs to the second generation of KISS trains that was delivered to Westbahn. Read more about the background of this project:
