During the second half of October, 2001, a DB multi-voltage ICE3 (type 406) visited Belgium for type acceptance tests, in preparation for through running between Köln and Brussels next year when the high-speed line now under construction some 65 km between Ans and Leuven is taken into service. It is seen here beside PBA Thalys 4531 outside Forest TGV depôt on 1 November 2001

DB ICE-3M passing Leuven

And you thought that trains that don't pause at Leuven pass the station slowly ?? Certainly not , as this blurred picture of a DB ICE-3M is a proof of it ! Leuven station has 2 fast tracks (160 km/h) for Thalys and ICE-3M trains to pass Leuven since they don't pause there.

Leuven , 27/06/2005.
