They are available in trainsets of two to four cars, in narrow, standard and broad gauge, as an electric multiple unit (EMU), diesel multiple unit (DMU) or bimodal. Elektriraudtee and Stadler signed the procurement contract for the new 18 electric and 20 diesel powered Stadler FLIRT passenger trains to.

The testing was done to confirm the energy supply system's stability, according to a press release. Alstom also tested the train's braking power to check the interaction between the pneumatic and electric brakes. At the same time, Alstom continues to receive orders for its Coradia line of passenger trains. The company builds alternative versions of the Coradia model for different markets. The Coradia Nordic, for example, was built to withstand rigorous Scandinavian winters.
That version is capable of operating at degrees Celsius degrees Fahrenheit.

The Nordic also complies with northern Europe's gauge standard, according to Alstom. The Coradia Meridian, on the other hand, was designed specifically for Italian rail operator Trenitalia and other regional operators in Italy.
Alstom also offers the Coradia Polyvalent, which the company describes as "one of the most versatile versions of the Coradia. What are some general characteristics that customers seek in passenger locomotives? Efficiency, optimized capacity and competitive costs, Gahl said.

The market for Bombardier Transportation 's commuter trains also has been "quite stable," said Ewald Falke, senior expert, propulsion systems and product marketing. The order was based on two framework agreements signed with DB in and The TRAXX 3 locomotive also will be enhanced to travel at kph, or about mph, for cross-border service.
Stadler Rail "Locomotive-hauled trains are attractive for cross-border traffic due to the low interoperability costs," Falke said. EMUs with battery power also are becoming more attractive for rail operators, especially in Europe, Bombardier officials said. The company currently is developing the Talent 3 EMU for service on non- or partially-electrified routes. While the overall passenger locomotive market in was "down worldwide," there was growth from through in several regions, including the United States and Russia, said Stadler Rail spokeswoman Mar Rivas.
Stadler also offers the Euro Dual locomotive, which operates on electrified and non-electrified lines. The unit travels at speeds up to kph, or about mph.
The company has several diesel engine modules to meet customer requirements, Rivas said. Similarly, Stadler's Class88 locomotive can run on electrified lines with overhead catenary but features a diesel engine to operate on non-electric lines. The unit features high traction power and low weight. More improvements on the way The company is "constantly improving" the performance and efficiency of its trains, Rivas said. In developing new models, Stadler focuses on energy efficiency, low lifecycle costs and minimal maintenance needs.
Stadler takes into account locomotive engineer comfort, too: The trains have proved to be reliable, as availability of the units is constantly around The outstanding service of Elron has been proven by the constantly growing number of passengers, which have increased by 60 percent on the electric lines, and 15 percent on the diesel lines, totaling to an average of 50 percent.
The financial status of Elron improves not only due to the growing number of passengers, but also the decreasing operational costs. Due to the weight loss of the trains the charges for the railway network access decreased for Elron too. The broad gauge mm trains have been designed and manufactured to easily endure the harsh weather conditions typical in Estonia, which expertise Stadler gained through its earlier deliveries to Finland and Norway.
Due to the lightweight aluminum structure and the modern energy saving system, the new trains also mean a great cost-saving for the operator.

The diesel trains also have outstanding accelerating abilities of 0. The high top speed and the admirable accelerating make the drivers capable to catch up even significant leeways between two stops. The passengers also observe a great improvement in comfort, as all trains are equipped with state-of-the art information system, air-conditioners, free 4G WIFI, computer desks, power supplies for the charging of notebooks or cell phones, video surveillance and multipurpose areas appropriate for the transport of wheelchairs, baby trolleys or bicycles.
Free and fast passenger flow is secured by the wide doors available on each side.
