Bombardier lands German coach contract

Posted on December 29, 2008

Bombardier Transportation will build 34 additional double-deck coaches for the Landesnahverkehrsgesellschaft Niedersachsen GmbH (LNVG).

The order is worth approximately $66 million (USD) and will enhance the LNVG’s current fleet of 186 Bombardier double-deck coaches, in use since 2003.

The vehicles currently on order are double-deck intermediate, high-floor entry coaches with comfortable second class areas in the upper and lower decks. They will have the same functions as — and will be fully compatible with — the fleet that is already in operation.

All the vehicles will be manufactured at the Bombardier site in Görlitz, Germany. More than 2,000 double-deck coaches of a comparable type have already been supplied from this site over the last 19 years for use in Germany.
