Superfast Train Recall




BERLIN -- The German railway said Thursday that it had ordered companies involved in manufacturing its new IntercityExpress-T trains to carry out urgent checks after two derailments prompted the railway to take them all out of service.


No one was injured Wednesday when one of the superfast, modern trains derailed at low speed as it was traveling to a railway workshop in Berlin. The train was hoisted back onto the tracks, and derailed again.


Deutsche Bahn AG pulled all 11 of the trains, designed to travel at speeds of 230 kilometers per hour, off their routes for technical inspections, the railway said.
