Posted on February 4, 2003

Bombardier Transportation received an additional order for 73 high-capacity trains type AGC (Autorail Grande Capacite) from the French National Railways (SNCF), valued at an estimated $260 million. This is a follow-on order to a contract awarded to Bombardier by SNCF in Dec. 2001 for the supply of 500 AGC trains to the French regions. The trains, to be built at Bombardier's Crespin plant in the Valenciennes region of France, will be delivered between Nov. 2006 and Nov. 2007. The seating capacity of the AGC trains, which can run on either diesel fuel, electricity or a combination of the two, ranges from 160 to 220 seats. The AGC, featuring wide carbodies and intercirculation gangways, will travel at a maximum speed of 99.4 mph.
