    Could someone please advise whether this train is a DMU or a DB Class 218?

    According to Die Bahn the train departs at 17.02. I have sent a tweet and wait for a reply.

    Auf der Strecke fahren zwei verschiedene IRE-Züge: zum einen die Dieseltriebwagen der Baureihe 611, die im 120-Minuten-Takt bis Basel fahren, zum anderen Wendezüge mit Lokomotiven der Baureihe 218 mit Doppelstockwagen oder n-Wagen, die im 120-Minuten-Takt von Stuttgart aus bis Lindau fahren, verstärkt durch IRE-Züge von Ulm nach Lindau, gefahren mit ebenfalls Baureihe 218 mit Doppelstockwagen oder n-Wagen, allerdings auch mit Dieseltriebwagen der Baureihe 611.

    That was German and the answer is that both brands of trains operate on that line. Locomotive 218 has double level wagons and the 611 has hopefully 2 pieces of equipment.

    Pretty sure the IREs from Stuttgart are all hauled, 146 then 218. A unit would never keep time to Stuttgart on the mainline, let alone the lack of capacity.

    Some of the trains are fresh air stock, couple of Ulm-Lindau shuttles on top of the basic 2-hourly pattern from memory.

    Last years diagrams are here if you are not on erg, unlikely to be many changes http://www.v160.de/index.php/baureihe-218/baureihe218-fahrzeugeinsatz

    Between Ulm and Stuttgart the IRE is only 6 minutes slower than the nonstop ICE. The stop in Ulm is 10 minutes both ways; so time enough for a locomotive change.

    The Stuttgart-Lindau IREs are indeed all hauled. The majority are 146 to Ulm then 218 forward (and v.v. of course). The exception is the 0756 arrival and 0802 departure from Stuttgart which is top & tail 218s. There used to be a balancing working in the evening peak but I'm not sure if this one is 218s any more - it was either the 1602 or the 1702.

    That locchange has the benefit that people can arrive and depart from the Mannheim area with an ICE in Ulm. So that timeloss is not wasted.
