The IC 2000 is a double-decker train in Switzerlandmarker and is run by Swiss Federal Railways.

When it debuted in 1997, it was the first double-decker train in use on a nationwide scale. Previously, most, if not all, double-decker trains, belonged to the Z├╝rich S-Bahn network.

The IC 2000 now has a dining car/rail bar, a rolling rail bar service, and first and second class compartments, as well as a family compartment in 2nd class and conveyance space for bicycles.

In the frontmost carriage in first class (closest to the head of the train) first class seats are partially equipped with electronic power sockets. Some routes even feature wifi in first class.

The usage of the IC 2000 is now very commonplace in Switzerland. Its "cowlike" black-and-white design, and red doors, make it instantly recognizable. The train exterior was designed by Pininfarina, to match the style of the Re 460 locomotive used with the trainset.

Due to the frequent use of mobile phones, there are now "silent area" compartments in both classes where the use of mobile phones, loud talking, and earsets/earphones set at loud volumes are prohibited.
