The DMUs will be built at Alstom’s production facility in Salzgitter, Lower Saxony.

The two-car Coradia Lint trains have a maximum operating speed of 140km/h, an access height of 730mm and seating capacity for 158 passengers and 12 bicycles.

The vehicles are also equipped with power sockets, a passenger information system and CCTV.

“The early changeover to new trains means a qualitative quantum leap for our passengers and us so that all employees are also full of anticipation for the new vehicles,” says chairman of the management board of BOB, Mr Fabian Amini. “As a next big step, we hope a decision will soon be taken for the electrification of the Oberland.”
