[CH] Giruno 501 004 in CH/IT flag design – Italy trials to start next month

In September the homologation trials with Stadler Rail’s Smile EMU in Italy will commence. For the occasion EMu no. 501 004 got a custom made design: One end car now sports the national colours of Switzerland, the other one those of Italy.

The intermediate cars are white and show the silhouettes of cities and the Alps, combined with the logos of the many companies involved in the ‘Giruno‘ project – the name that is used by the Swiss Railways for this type of train.

Another nice shot of the new train was made by Dario Häusermann.
