S-Bahn Berlin has released a video of its newest rolling stock, being tested at Siemens’ test center in Wegberg-Wildenrath. The 4-car EMU needs to complete 160.000 km on the test ring. Enjoy.
Stadler Rail and Siemens are building 106 EMUs for S-Bahn Berlin (382 cars). There will be 85 4-car units (series 484 A/B/C/D) and another 21 2-car units (seris 483 A/B), to be operated on Berlin’s ring network (S41, S42) and the S8/S46/S47 services in the south-east. In the video you see a ‘Halbzug’ = 4-car set – 73.6 meters long seating up to 184 people. Revenue service is planned to start in 2021 on the S47. By the end of 2023, all trains on order must be available.
