Deutsche Bahn: Idea Train

German rail operator, Deutsche Bahn, has launched its most innovative train concept as part of a national roadshow, to show what the future may hold for rail transport. 

The 30-metre-long ‘Idea Train’ (Ideenzug) showcases new concepts and brings ideas to life of how travel could change in the next few years. Working with several partners to create it, Deutsche Bahn selected a range of Camira’s fabrics to feature throughout the train, from the company’s portfolio of fabrics for both transport and contract interiors.

The 'Idea Train'


Considering aesthetic design, functionality and performance, the concept of the train is to inspire customers. The aim is to bring differentiation and new ideas around public transport with tangible concepts, from digital applications to the overall interior travel experience.
