Bavaria and Austria, which covers regional services on the Munich -
Traunstein - Salzburg, Munich - Kufstein and Munich - Holzkirchen -
Rosenheim lines. Veolia was awarded a 12-year contract last December to
operate these services from December 2013, taking over from German Rail

On the Munich - Salzburg route, Veolia will operate hourly regional
express services, which will run non-stop between Rosenheim and Munich
East, reducing journey times by up to 10 minutes. An hourly through
service will also operate throughout the day on the Kufstein - Munich
line, eliminating the need to change trains at Rosenheim.

Last month Stadler Pankow, the German subsidiary of Stadler,
Switzerland, announced a major expansion of production capacity at its
site in Berlin to accommodate an increase in emu orders.
