Bombardier Transportation received a repeat order for 32 Omneo Premium double-deck trainsets (256 cars) from the French National Railway Co., SNCF Mobilités, on behalf of the Centre-Val de Loire Region.

The order is the result of an agreement reached between the State and the Region to take over the management of three intercity lines or Trains d'Equibilibre du Territoire (TET). The repeat order is part of the contract signed in 2010 with SNCF to provide up to 860 double-deck trains to French regions and is valued at approximately $444 million. The first trains will be delivered in 2020 and gradually until 2022.

Specially designed for long intercity journeys, the Omeno Premium can travel at up to 124 mph and offers a high level of onboard comfort to meet the demands of long distance travelers. Bombardier's engineers developed a new interior design, which optimizes available space to the benefit of passengers and seating arrangements. The train will feature a newly developed wide seat with integrated lighting, power plug, and Wi-Fi, while its interior design, color scheme, and configuration will be fine-tuned in the coming months in cooperation with the client. It offers improved access via large, platform-level doors, wide corridors and gangways for easy movement throughout the length of the train.

The train for the Centre-Val de Loire Region will offer a seating capacity reaching 373 seats in first and second-class cars, with large baggage racks, dynamic passenger information screens, a dedicated area for two wheelchairs, and space for nine bicycles. It will operate in multiple units of two or three.
