RBS (Regionalverkehr Bern-Solothurn) from Switzerland will receive a new type of train from Stadler Rail in 2018. The operator started the project a bit differently; First, a design was made, and then a manufacturer was sought to develop and build a train based on the design. Now it is clear that Stadler Rail will manufacturer the new RBS-trains.
The sixty meter long, four-car EMUs will be delivered between 2018 and 2020. The fourteen sets will be deployed on line S7 (Bern – Worb).
