DB Regio selected for Rhein-Neckar operating contract
In mid-August, we showed you a preview of the ‘Saar RB part 1’ Coradia Continental for DB Regio. Now, the last unit of the series is seen making a public appearance.
We thank Artemios Klonos for sharing his picture with us via our picture submission form.
On 14.11.2019 a brand new 4-car Coradia continental was spotted at Burgdorf (DE). According to Artemios, the EMU was coming from Lehrte in direction to Celle and was most likely running tests:

The unit is numbered 94 80 1440 025-3 D-DB, meaning it is the last of a total of 25 such trains that DB Regio will be using in the Saar RB (part 1) network, starting from December 2019.
Curious fact(s): The text on the route display at the front window says: “operated by VGT mbH”. Interestingly, the specific triangle pattern which follows the red ends of the trains was not applied (yet).
