These diesel trains will have two coaches. They will be
designed and produced at Alstoms Salzgitter site in
Germany. Each train can accommodate up to 127 passengers and
travels at up to 120 kph. The continuous low floor, entry steps
that can be lowered and raised, and gangways between the
coaches make it easier to access the train and move around on
board, particularly for people with reduced mobility. Lastly,
the Coradia LINT trains are built according to Alstom's
environmental policy: they are 95% recyclable and have filters
that cut soot particle emissions by 95%.
Since the launch of the first regional trains in the Coradia
LINT range in 2000, Alstom has sold 437 trains to both public
and private operators in Germany, the Netherlands and Denmark.
These trains are tried and tested, and are particularly
reliable, having covered over 350 million kilometres in
This new contract is proof of LNVGs confidence in
us. It now has a fleet of 64 Coradia Lint regional trains,
including this order, stated Roland Kientz, Senior Vice
President of Alstom Transport for Northern Europe.
Thanks to this train - which has seen nothing but
success since its launch - Deutsche Bahn has named Alstom its
Supplier of the Year for 2008.
