Incorrect phrase[edit]

After DB's privatization in 1994

DB (Deutsche Bundesbahn) was not privatized in 1994. It became part of DB (Deutsche Bahn) AG. Future privatization of DB AG has been much talked about, but the company, though structured as a commercial enterprise, can hardly be said to be a private one since it is owned 100% by the German federal government. --Picapica 09:31, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Correct. 1994 was first stage of Bahnreform (a two-step process administrative reform), when former Deutsche Bundesbahn was changed into Deutsche Bahn AG. The second step saw the partition into the subdivisions. I'll check with the main article. --Sunshinemind 07:45, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Picture[edit]

As class 103 was seen as one of the most elegant locos, I wonder if somebody may contribute a better picture? --Sunshinemind 07:32, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Assessment[edit]

As the 103 was seen as the DB's 'flagship' locomotive for many years, I have raised its importance to 'mid'. --Bermicourt (talk) 10:12, 22 August 2008 (UTC) The English in this article badly needs correction by someone who speaks English - I've done a little 78.48.72.205 (talk) 13:31, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
