ICE on the rail

High-speed trains: fast and safe.

High-speed trains can travel at speeds of over 300 km/h. The extremely high demands that this places on the Knorr-Bremse systems in the vehicles must be met without compromising safety.

In locations where their benefits can be fully leveraged, high-speed trains are the transportation method of choice for long-distance journeys, establishing themselves as an affordable and climate-friendly alternative to air travel. In Japan, for example, they already offer shorter journey times than airplanes for many domestic routes, while in Europe high-speed rail links connect the major cities of Brussels, London and Paris. In China, meanwhile, high-speed trains have cut the time taken to travel the central north-south axis from Beijing to Guangzhou from 20 to just eight hours. The USA is also now looking to press ahead with the construction of a high-speed rail network.
