DB Regio selected for Rhein-Neckar operating contract
VAG initially ordered 21 G1 trains and later exercised options for an additional 13 trains. The total value of the contract is €263.2m.
The aluminium, articulated trains are 75m long and have seats for 128 passengers and room another 476 standing passengers.
These are the first trains in Nuremberg to have air-conditioning. They also feature screens displaying real-time information, news and entertainment, along with CCTV.
Inside the G1 train: Mr Tim Dahlmann-Resing, VAG’s board member for technology and marketing, Ms Sabrina Soussan, CEO of Siemens Mobility, and Mr Josef Hasler, chairman of VAG’s Executive Board.
Each set of sliding doors is 1.4m wide, which is 100mm wider than on the existing trains. A retractable plate bridges the gap between the train and the platform at stations to provide barrier-free access for disabled passengers.
LED strip lights both inside and outside the train indicate green when it is safe to board and alight from the train, and red when the doors are about to close.
The trains are due to enter service between the start of 2020 and the end of 2022.
Line U1 is 18.5km long with 27 stations and is the oldest line on Nuremberg’s three-line network.
