Electrical Multiple Unit TALENT for Suburban Service - Austria
In 2001 Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) ordered a further 17 TALENT electrical multiple units. This means that a total of 177 four-car vehicles have been delivered, 20 of which have a 2 system arrangement for cross-border traffic. Based on the innovative design, Bombardier Transportation developed in consortium with ELIN EBG Traction a train (SBTW) for suburban services. The cars offer level access at 550 mm platforms, while the vehicle length is designed for 140 m long platforms. An interior with air-conditioning and a clear view through the whole vehicle are only a few of the TALENT designated comfort features for local transportation. In addition, a special rest room for disabled persons and areas for prams and wheelchairs are included.
