Bombardier supplying 42 French trainsets

Posted on December 31, 2014

Bombardier Transportation won an order to supply 42 Regio 2N trainsets to the Syndicat des Transports d’Ile-de-France (STIF) and SNCF.

The order for 42 double-deck trains is an additional order in the framework of an ongoing contract signed in 2010 and is valued at approximately $484 million. Delivery of the new trains will start from September 2017 and the trains will operate on Line R of the Parisian suburban network.

The STIF and SNCF selected the long eight-car suburban Regio 2N version from the Bombardier OMNEO platform of extra-wide double-deck electrical multiple units.

The trains will have five seats in each row, two seats on one side of the corridor and three seats on the other, to offer more seating capacity compared to conventional double-deck trains. The Regio 2N trains are designed to operate with three units coupled together, enabling it to transport a total of 3,120 passengers of which 1,746 passengers can travel seated.

The Regio 2N fleet offers substantial maintenance optimization, resulting from the joint cooperation with SNCF experts. These trains will benefit from economies of scale of a platform widely spread out in ten Regions, including Ile-de-France.
