With the aim of making tomorrow´s trains faster, more comfortable and more efficient, the Next Generation Train (NGT) research project has now entered its third phase. This family of cutting-edge train concepts has been under ongoing development since 2007, with the ultra-high-speed NGT HST (formerly NGT HGV) leading the way since the project´s inception. With the beginning of the second phase of the NGT project in 2011, a new concept joined the family. NGT LINK. Since the last overview of the NGT project was featured in European Railway Review in 2012, development on the NGT LINK has progressed in detail. Here, the German Aerospace Center´s Joachim Winter, Project Manager and David Krüger, Research Associate, give an overview on aspects ranging from propulsion and power supply to aerodynamics and passenger flow.
