Alstom has received an order worth around €70 million from Deutsche Bahn to supply 30 regional trains for use on train lines around the city of Nuremberg.


Deutsche Bahn (DB Regio) has ordered 30 CORADIA LINT regional trains worth about €70 million from Alstom in Salzgitter, Germany.



The diesel multiple units are to be delivered between December 2007 and September 2008. In December 2008 they will take up service on the regional train lines around the city of Nuremberg.



The new, fast-accelerating CORADIA LINT trains run up to a speed of 120 km/h and offer seats for 136 passengers.



Alstom says it has sold 337 CORADIA LINT trains in Germany, the Netherlands and Denmark to private and state transport authorities as well as operators.
