Growling Rabbits

Two pairs of InterCity services are hauled by double-headed Class 218 diesels between Stuttgart and Ulm at the moment, making a nice change from the usual DB Class 101 electrics.

218.494 and 218.435 climbed towards the summit at Beimerstetten with IC 119 on 10 May 2017. The 07:27 from Münster Hbf to Innsbruck Hbf is diesel hauled from Stuttgart to Lindau, where an ÖBB Class 1116 takes over for the final stage of the journey. A couple of years ago it also had the honour of being booked for a Class 103 between Münster and Stuttgart.
