[CH] Eight narrow-gauge Stadler trains for FART

Stadler Rail will supply eight new narrow-gauge EMUs to Ferrovie Autolinee regionali Ticinesi (FART). In 2023, on the occasion of the operator’s hundredth anniversary, these units should be available for operation.

After the delivery of FLIRT TILO trains for the cross-border operation, the Swiss region of Ticino is about to get more ‘Stadlerized’. In less than three years from now, four 3-car and four 4-car meter-gauge electric multiple units will replace the older rolling stock on FART’s routes.
