Siemens Mobility has received an order from the Czech railway company Ceske Drahy for the delivery of 16 seven-car Railjet trains worth €200m.
The Railjets will be employed on the national mainline between Prague and Brno and in cross-border traffic to Austria, Germany, Hungary and Slovakia.
The 185.5m-long trains consist of a driving trailer and six intermediate cars that are coupled to a locomotive operating in push-pull mode.
Onboard features include a bistro car, a restroom for persons with reduced mobility, a wheelchair lift on each exit side, spaces reserved for baby carriages and strollers, as well as a mini cinema for children.
Siemens is expected to start delivery of the trains in 2013, with all 16 Railjets to be delivered by 2014.
