Each 38m-long train will accommodate up to 372 passengers, double the capacity of the class 2400 DMUs Incofer acquired from Spanish metre-gauge operator Feve, which are currently used on these services.

The stainless-steel-bodied air-conditioned trains will feature a multifunctional area with spaces for two wheelchairs as well as LED passenger information screens.

The 1067mm-gauge trains will be equipped with diesel engines which comply with EU Stage IIIA emissions standards.

Deliveries are due to begin within 16 months.
