German trains show Kernel, IP-address *and* MAC address

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/21

A long time ago, I found out German trains can show a Kernel version number during their boot sequence (sometimes even at their station, in this case Hannover Central Station). Recently, I found who posted the original of the picture (Volker Briegleb) and through reddit that Volker had posted more pictures on a twitter thread.

So this train showed:

  • Kernel:
  • IP:
  • MAC: 74:38:89:00:66:C9

The MAC address indicates the network device is made by ANNAX Anzeigesysteme GmbH.
