The rolling stock consists of 53 modernised ABvmz, Avmz, Bm, Bomz compartment coaches and two modernised n coaches (former “Silberlinge”) converted for the transport of bicycles. Most of the coaches were approved for 200 km/h, but some only for 140 km/h (n coaches) and 160 km/h (Bm, double-decker coaches).

TI coaches

Since the timetable change in December 2017, the so-called TI coaches have also been in use. In addition to the new alex treff area, there are 1st class compartments and other service areas, including a children’s play area.

The conversion of the TI coaches was carried out at the NETINERA factory in Neustrelitz. Like the other alex cars, they are then equipped with Wi-Fi and TFT monitors.

Since the start of the alex service (7 December 2009), 7 double-decker low-floor coaches (Dostos) manufactured by Bombardier Transportation have also been used.
