FERROVIENORD, Italy, has signed a contract worth around €100m with AnsaldoBreda for seven additional TSR six-car double-deck EMUs, which will be used on regional services in Lombardy by Trenord, the company's joint venture with Trenitalia.

The order is an option from a contract signed last year for seven TSR sets. Delivery of the additional trains is expected to begin in January 2015.

Ferrovienord has already received a total of 78 TSR trains, which were delivered by AnsaldoBreda in several batches between 2006 and 2012.
