The 96.9m-long six-car trains seat 326 passengers, including 42 on folding seats, with two wheelchair spaces. In addition, the train will accommodate 20 bicycles, and could be adapted to carry up to 30 bicycles in the summer season.

The trains are being built and Alstom’s Savigliano plant in northern Italy and all six sets are due to be delivered by next month.
