Photographer's Note

Class 103 electric locomotives of Deutsche Bundesbahn were designed for high speed InterCity and Trans Europ Express trains. They were built between 1970 and 1973. Until late 1980s class 103 had a near monopoly for high speed trains in Germany, with speeds up to 200 km/h on regular services.
With the first InterCityExpress commencing service in 1991, Class 103 was no longer was DB's flagship, and received less important duties. Remaining Class 103 units were retired from normal service by 2003. Nowadays three class 103 members belong to DB historic locomotives, and apparently can still be seen on some regular trains.
