The Deutsche Bundesbahn started a series of trials in 1985 using the InterCityExperimental (also called ICE V) test train. The IC Experimental was used as a showcase train and during it's high-speed trials it set a former world speed record at 406.9 km/h (253 mph) on 1 May 1988. The train was retired in 1996 and replaced with a new trial unit, called the ICE S. The ICE network was officially opened on 29 May 1991 with several vehicles converging on the newly built station Kassel-Wilhelmshöhe from different directions.
