This is a train at the Central Railway Station in Strasbourg, France!!! The train is Bombardier as you can see on the inscription. Actually MANY of the trains around the world are made by Bombardier!!! Including the once in Germany. But what the germans do is, they do not just leave the bombardier inscriptions on the trains but remove them and put an inscrpition Siemens. How mean!!!
So everybody thinks that the high-speed trains in Germany are german once but they are not. You can check it.

Nice and colourful picture of this train, it looks like new. Interesting details like LED backlights.
Your comment on high-speed trains made me curious. Checked the site where it reads:
"A consortium of Bombardier Transportation and Siemens delivers ICE 3 electrical multiple units to German Rail (DB AG)"
Of course projects like these are nowadays multinational. But I found your comment of them being not German a bit long shot.

Nice picture with nice coloours showing this modern train. Regarding the german trains they are still manufactured in Germany. The company's name was AdTranz untill the Canadian company Bombardier decided to overtake the german company and get access to german train technology which together with french are world leading. So despite the fact that the brand Bombardier is visible on the trains they are still manufactured in Germany and with german technology.

Vivid colours and interesting note - tho i'm not a train spotter. Good overall balance to the shot - and the light and shadows look good. Nice one, Dave
