Difference between IC and IR trains

New Author

If given the same amounts of travel time, should I choose a IC or IR train?  I think that the IR makes more stops, is that correct?  If that is true, an IC train would make more sense, right?  Thanks

Hi @SarahDouglasGracey

If the duration is the same, it doesn't matter which train you take. An IR train does not necessarily stop at more stations than the IC train.

You can see the stops by clicking on the route.
