This Message Matters: Tolerance for All Views!
This has caused a great response: On July 9, 2021, the DB sent an ICE 3 - the Tz 304 powered rail car train "München" with the two powered end cars, road numbers 403 022-7 and 403 504-4 - out on to the rails. The railroad wants to set an example with this for diversity and tolerance, for collective respect and trust, and for respectful contact with the diversity of all human beings. This powered rail car train is running in the rotational schedule of the ICE 3 and as the "Railbow ICE" is thereby carrying a quite special message all over Germany.
