New SBB Double-Deck Train Receives Operating Permit

Published on : Monday, December 4, 2017

bombardierThe TWINDEXX Swiss Express for SBB FV-Dosto has received its operating permit for the Swiss network from the Federal Department of Transport (BAV).

 

In a procedure involving multiple tests, BAV awarded SBB’s new double-deck train with an operating permit for the Swiss network. In doing so, BAV confirms the TWINDEXX Swiss Express has, among other things, met all the required criteria regarding safety. The managing director of Bombardier Transportation in Switzerland, Stéphane Wettstein, is delighted that the operating permit has been awarded: “Now we can begin the process of gradually passing the trains on to SBB. We have made great progress with production and will be supplying all the trains as per the original delivery schedule by early 2020.”

 

 

Bombardier Transportation is supplying SBB with 62 trains in three different models (the IC200 with a restaurant car and family compartment, the IR100 and the IR200). The new SBB long-distance train has around 10 per cent more seats than current double-deck trains and can go through curves up to 15 per cent faster, thanks to the built-in roll compensation (Wako), without the ride comfort for the passengers being affected.
