Bombardier receives 49 French double-deck train order

Posted on March 25, 2010

Bombardier Transportation received an order for 49 additional Régio2N regional double-deck trains, as an option from the Régio2N contract signed with SNCF on behalf of the French Regions, in February. This additional order for 49 trains, which will be financed by the Regions, amounts to approximately $474 million.

The Regio2N contract signed with SNCF in February, foresees the production of a total maximum of 860 trains.

This order will increase the production rate of Bombardier's site in Crespin (Northern France) up to a maximum of 60 trains per year. The first deliveries will start in June 2013 as foreseen and the total of 129 trains, which have been ordered to date, will be delivered by mid-2016.

The specially developed Régio2N double-deck train, includes a modular concept to meet the Regions' various needs in terms of suburban and intercity services; wide-body cars to offer unmatched capacity and a high level of comfort; and an articulated architecture and wide connectors, which create transparency throughout the length of the train and an increased sense of security.
