Trains in Germany

In Germany there are two companies offering long-distance trains: Deutsche Bahn (formerly state-owned company) and Connex (a new company offering some long-distance services esp. in the east).

the popular "Interregio-trains" have recently been abolished.

Regional rail traffic is organized by the Federal States. They mostly order locomotives and wagons at Deutsche Bahn, sometimes at Connex or regional companies.
