Posted on July 24, 2014

Alstom obtained approval by the German Federal Railway Office for its 91 Coradia Lint regional trains one half year prior to their scheduled start of operations.

In all, 63 trains will be operated by vlexx GmbH and the other 28 trains, which are owned by Landesnahverkehrsgesellschaft Niedersachsen will be operated by erixx GmbH. All 91 diesel multiple units are expected to enter operation as scheduled in December 2014.

The 63 trains to be operated by vlexx will link the regional network in Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse with the regions of Rheinhessen, Nahe and Westpfalz with the metropolitan regions Rhine-Main and the centers of Mainz, Rüsselsheim and Frankfurt as well as Frankfurt Airport and Saarland. The contract was signed in September 2012.

The 28 trains operated by erixx will be used on the diesel network in southeast Lower Saxony. The diesel multiple units will serve the lines Hanover‐Hildesheim‐Bad Harzburg, Uelzen‐Braunschweig‐Wolfenbüttel‐Vienenburg‐Bad Harzburg/Goslar and Lüneburg-Dannenberg. The order was granted in December 2011.
