Yavianice posted a topic in Worldwide RailDeutsche Bahn refuses to purchase the remaining 25 IC2 TWINDEXX sets (5 cars + one loco) from bombardier due to continued problems with the software (aka features). The features include: - The loco and the 5 cars are a set and cannot be uncoupled. One car stops working? That’s it, whole train stops working. You can’t switch out the car and the whole set needs to be repaired. - When reversing, computers crash and take about 30 minutes to reset, if that even succeeds. - The second iteration sets feature a dark mode. Meaning that randomly the lights refuse to turn on.

Another reason to visit the Gotthard Route sooner rather than later.
