DB Regio selected for Rhein-Neckar operating contract
In April we reported about Adif’s tender for a high speed measurement train – this time, the infra structure manager from Spain is looking for three new multiple units for departmental workings. Including 5 years of maintenance, the contract can have a value of 61,6 million euro.
Two trains should be Iberian gauge (1.600 mm), and one should have standard European gauge bogies (1.435 mm). It should be the only structural difference between the three sets – so gauge of the trains can be adjusted by simply exchanging the bogies.
Dual mode traction, diesel and electric, is required. The design of new trains will have to be based on an existing model, or a a type of train currently under devlopment.
The interiors will be completely modular, with spaces for monitoring the infrastructure, offices, meeting rooms and storage spaces. The trains should be PRM-friendly.
