    The class 218 is virtually indispensable in today's train service (commuter and long-distance service). On the lines to Fehmarn and Sylt in the North as well as in the South on the IC trains to Oberstdorf (the motive power is units from Kempten). Class 218 units from Ulm could still be encountered until December of 2021 pulling trains (IC 118/119) on the until recently last, pure diesel main route, the Swabian South Line from Ulm to Lake Constance.
