The Allgäu Express is a modern concept for regional express passenger service in the alpine foothills. This train closes gaps in the passenger network that are no longer served since the discontinuation of the InterRegio trains. Powerful locomotives, updated cars, and trained personnel offer punctuality, comfort, and service - features the "alex" is using in the travel market to establish its image.
