  • Prototype information

    The class VT 11.5 (later the class 601 and class 602 gas turbine) was developed in the Fifties as part of the introduction of the TEE concept in Europe. From 1957 on it was successfully used for many years as a flagship train for the DB in international long distance service. The last of these connections existed as the powered rail car train "Mediolanum" on the route from Munich to Milan.
