This first firm order comes within the framework of an
investment programme for 629 new cars, to be carried out over
several years and financed by regional authorities. The new
distributed power vehicle, part of the CORADIA DUPLEX' product
family, can operate at up to 160km/hour. The order calls for 72
trainsets, composed of 2 to 5 cars, according to service
requirements. The number of seated places will be 220 in the
2-car version, and 576 in the 5-car version. First deliveries
will begin in December 2003.

These trainsets are destined to reinforce the
operator's service around major regional metropolitan areas,
offering passengers high quality, fast, comfortable and safe rail
travel conditions. Luxembourg Railways (CFL) also has an option
to purchase a certain number of trainsets for its own needs, as
well as for cross-border service.

ANF Industries (Bombardier) will also participate in the
manufacture of these trains. This order from the SNCF and the
Regions of France further confirms the success of the double-deck
rolling stock concept developed by ALSTOM and strengthens the
Company's position as the leading supplier of rolling stock for
inter-city and regional passenger transport.

With more than 35 product lines and a presence in over 60
countries, ALSTOM's Transport Sector offers cutting-edge
products and services to four distinct types of customers:
urban transit authorities and operators; intercity passenger
rail operators and rolling stock owners; rail freight
operators; and intercity railway infrastructure owners.
ALSTOM's Transport Sector, with 4.4  billion euros in
sales in 2001, is among the world's leading suppliers to the
railway industry.
