THE DB'S NEW CONCEPT FOR FAST LONG DISTANCE PASSENGER TRAFFIC

DAS NEUE KONZEPT DER DEUTSCHEN BUNDESBAHN FUER DEN SCHIENENPERSONENFERNVERKEHR

In 20 years travel has increased sixfold in Federal Germany with little benefit to DB's passenger traffic. Market studies and comprehensive analyses have led to a new concept aiming at offering numerous fast and direct day trains on the routes the most used by 2nd class passengers. The new services are called by IC 79, and first appeared in the new timetable valid from 27 May 1979. They provide 1st and 2nd class accommodation with regular departures once an hour between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m.
