[CH / Expert] InnoTrans 2018: The Worbla for RBS

From the end of 2018 RBS (Regionalverkehr Bern-Solothurn) from Switzerland will begin operating a new type of EMU train from Stadler Rail: the Be 4/10 ‘Worbla’ series. The eye-catching train is destined to become the successor of the Be 4/8 and Be 4/12 series, nicknamed ‘Mandarinli’. This is how we experienced the new little mandarin:

Product: EMU type Be 4/10 – a 4-car, 1000mm-gauge unit that is officially called ‘Worbla’.

Super new? Brand new. The first copy was officially presented by the RBS on 16 August and the test drives have now started.
