Bombardier to supply 51 Talent 2 trains to Germany

Posted on November 22, 2010

Bombardier Transportation will supply another 51 Bombardier Talent 2 trains to Deutsche Bahn AG (DB AG), with the contract totaling approximately $271 million.

Thirty-six new three-car and 15 four-car Talent 2 suburban trains will enter service beginning December 2013 in and around Leipzig on the "Mitteldeutsche S-Bahn" network.

The trains are equipped with air-conditioning; sliding steps at each entry; and spacious multi-purpose areas with wheelchair, pram and bicycle access. The passenger compartments have integrated monitors that display current travel information. Passenger safety is enhanced through video monitoring and implementation of the latest crash requirements.

The new order brings the total number of Talent 2 trains ordered by Deutsche Bahn to 287. At the end of August, DB AG ordered 23 five-car trains for service on the Warnow network in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and a total of 37 (34 four-car and three two-car) trains for the Werdenfels railway in Bavaria.
