DB Regio selected for Rhein-Neckar operating contract
A few days ago, it became clear that Alstom’s Coradia Stream will be arriving in Denmark. Meanwhile, FNM and Ferrovienord from Italy are ordering 20 additional trainsets of the same platform. Railcolor News already pre-announced the contract extension a few weeks ago (together with an additional order of Caravaggio EMUs).
The call-off is part of the original framework contract from 2019 between Alstom and FNM. A total of 20 additional Donizetti EMUs will be delivered for deployment in the Italian region of Lombardy and its Milano – Sondrio – Tirano line. Valued at EUR 125 million, the trains are expected to begin rolling out from June 2023 onwards.
“(…) In the last 10 years, Alstom has delivered 54 regional trains for Lombardy. The new generation of Coradia Stream represents the best solution for meeting the increasing needs of both the region’s travelers and the operator,” – Michele Viale, Managing Director of Alstom Italy

About the “Donizetti”The trains, which are part of Alstom’s Coradia Stream family, are named after the Italian composer Gaetano Donizetti.
Their interior has been adapted for both medium-length and suburban journeys and includes wide corridors that are PRM-friendly. The units will be equipped with air conditioning, passenger information, and video surveillance, systems. Other features include on-seat USB and power sockets, entertainment service with 32-inch LCD screens, as well as Wi-Fi connectivity. The LED interior lighting is automatically regulated based on the amount of natural light entering from the train’s windows.
Built by Alstom in Italy
The EMUs will be mostly manufactured at Alstom’s site in Savigliano, where project development and certification are being carried out as well. Design and manufacturing of the traction systems and other components take place at Sesto San Giovanni, while the onboard signaling systems are delivered by the Bologna site.
