All passenger services on the line are currently operated by ageing two-car railbuses, which seat 80 passengers. The trains have a maximum speed of 60km/h and the journey time for the 88km trip is 3h 13min.
The tender calls for the supply of three DMUs, each with capacity for 119 passengers and equipped with a toilet.
The new trains are due to be delivered by 2021.
In addition to the renewal of rolling stock, EFE is planning to upgrade track and stations with the aim of reducing journey times and making the line more attractive to tourists.
