On 06.06.2018 Stadler Rail officially presented the new FLIRT trains for the Schweizerische Südostbahn (SOB) that will be deployed on the Voralpen-Express (VAE) line – between St. Gallen and Lucerne. This September we had the chance to experience the 8-car version of the train ourselves at InnoTrans 2018:
Product: 8-car FLIRT EMU for the SOB, the designated RABe 526 101/201. The name that the operator chose for this train: Traverso.
Super new? Yes, the Traverso is the newest, technically most advanced version of Stadler Rail’s FLIRT platform.
