After nearly three weeks of intense activity at the DB Systemtechnik test centre, the train started again on 26 November at 09:45 from Minden to Bad Bentheim, crossed the Netherlands and reached Antwerp in the evening. From here the train was transferred to Paris Le Bourget on Sunday 27 November. During the French Loop several cycles are planned from the train’s temporary base in Paris Le Bourget to Lyon (9x), to Metz (2x) and to Marseille (1x). The return trip via Belgium and the Netherlands is planned for mid December.
