From 1969, the Deutsche Bundesbahn established the D 1410/1411 as a fast daily connection between Düsseldorf/Cologne and Munich. For the first time, DB attempted to attract normal and business travel to the railways all year round with tariffs that were particularly favourable compared to the price of tourist tickets. The travel time was less than seven hours. To enable the train to reach speeds of up to 160 km/h, 20 DDm 915 cars were equipped with magnetic rail brakes. From 1971 the electric locomotive series 103 was used as the engine.
