[EU] Coming to the InnoTrans: Bombardier Omneo

Bombardier will present the Omneo articulated train next week in Berlin. During the past days, an 8-car (!) train set (no.009L) was prepared for presentation at the Bombardier factory in Crespin (FR). It got a complete new livery in the colors of SNCF Ter Région Centre, the French region south of Paris.

The Omneo has an interesting hybrid configuration, incorporating both single deck (multi functional) and double deck coaches. Various French regions have ordered such trains, to be operated by the SNCF as Regio2N Z 55500 series.
