CRRC Qingdao Sifang has unveiled the first of eight eight-car Class 2500 electric multiple-units that it is supplying for São Paulo suburban operator CPTM’s Line 13 to Guarulhos Airport under a contract awarded in September 2017.
The 12·2 km Line 13 was inaugurated in June 2018, and is currently operated using Hyundai Rotem Class 9500 EMUs.
The replacement trainsets are based on CRRC’s Type A metro train design. The 3 kV DC EMUs are 1 600 mm gauge, with four motor and four trailer cars and a maximum speed of 90 km/h.
Features for use on airport services include spaces for large luggage, and racks above the seats for small suitcases.
