THK Takes Part in the IdeasTrain (Ideenzug)

October 14, 2021

The IdeasTrain (Ideenzug) is a pilot project sponsored by the German railway company Deutsche Bahn (DB), and it proposes ideas for futuristic train interiors. THK products were featured in the second IdeasTrain (Ideenzug City), which was unveiled to German railway staff and members of the press in July 2021. This exhibit is scheduled to be open to the public at InnoTrans (Berlin, Germany) between September 20 and 23, 2022.

 In addition, the first IdeasTrain unveiled to the public at InnoTrans in September 2018 also adopted THK products.
