[CH] In the picture: The «Capricorn» of the Rhaetian Railway on tests


The «Capricorn» EMU represents a tailor-made solution by Stadler to fit the needs of the Rhaetian Railway (RhB). In 2016 the operator ordered a total of 36 such trainsets. Here is a visual of one of them, as seen on a test drive.

We thank Gunther Lange for sharing his pictures with us.
