[AT / Expert] ÖBB: CityJet, CityJet, Desiro and Talent as CityJet [updated]

Today the Austrian railways (ÖBB Personenverkehr) presented its refreshed Desiro and Talent regional trains at Wien Westbahnhof. Together with a Desiro ML EMU both train types were on display. To be more precise: Desiro DMU no. 5022 003 and Talent EMU no. 4124 003 were on display together with ÖBB 4746 006.

Earlier this year, ÖBB announced it was going to apply the CityJet branding on several train types used for regional and suburban services. The Desiro (series 5022) and Talent (series 4023, 4024, 4124) trains are the first two types to get a restyle, a new livery, new seats, and new passenger information systems. Later on, also double-deck push-pull rakes will be restyled. The CityJet brand was designed for the new Desiro ML EMUs currently being delivered by Siemens (series 4744 and 4746).
