The new train called “der Müngsterner” has been presented to around 100 guests at Abellio workshop in Hagen. Nine Coradia Lint 41/H from Alstom will serve the line between Wuppertal and Solingen. The trains meet all requirements regarding safety, emissions and accessibility.
Ronald R. F. Lünser, Director of Abellio Rail NRW GmbH: “The new Lints are the right choice for the Bergisch region. They have power, a high acceleration and offer our passengers comfort and safety. We already made good experiences with this vehicle on other routes and are very looking forward to putting the first new train into operation.”
Dr. Martin Lange, member of the German board from Alstom: “Our Coradia Lint is a successful and proven product – with 760 sold trains and a market share of 70%. The train for line S7 belongs to the latest generation and is absolutely state-of-the-art.”
