The trains that crashed on Tuesday morning were part of a recently built fleet. The fleet belongs to the Bayerische Oberlandbahn (BOB), a privatised train company, which operates in the Bad Aibling area under the local name Meridian.
The BOB exists across southern Bavaria. Its parent company, Transdev, is in turn owned by the French company Veolia.

Anyway, according to Railgazette.com the train accident at Aibling was a MAN_-MADE one. Contrary to  ...

DB Netz, a subsidiary of Deutsche Bahn, runs railway signalling across Germany. Its most recent annual report - from 2014 - states that 424 of the 3,090 signal boxes were electronic.
On the stretch of railway line in question, however, the signal box was of an older generation, which is run by relay interlocking and requires human input.

Last week the BOB warned (link in German) that 10 out of the fleet of 35 trains were out of order, owing to technical difficulties. As the cause of the accident is currently unknown, there is no suggestion that this was to blame.
