Slovakian company ZOS Vrútky will supply 12 Class 860 three-car inter-regional diesel motor units (DMUs) to national rail passenger transport operator ZSSK, under a €53m contract.

The operator will use these on Humenné-Presov-Kosice-Humenné services and from Nové Zámky to Leopoldov and Prievidza, the Railway Gazette website reports.

The new 140kmph model is powered by 400kW MAN engines with Voith transmission and the units will have 177 second-class seats plus space for bicycles, prams and luggage.

The Class 860 will partly be based on six Class 840 two-car GTW 2/6 DMUs delivered in 2003 by a consortium consisting of Stadler and ZOS Vrútky.

The new DMUs will be delivered between 2010 and 2015.
