Today, Bombardier announced it will be delivering three additional Omneo Regio 2N (R2N) trainsets to SNCF. The call-off coincides with the platform’s debut on the Transilien N-Line.
SNCF, on behalf of Île-de-France Mobilités, has ordered three further Omneo Regio 2N trainsets from Bombardier. The deliveries of the additional suburban EMUs are set to begin at the end of 2023 and they will be used to strengthen the Omneo Regio 2N fleet already in service on the R & D-Lines.
The newly announced call-off is part of the framework agreement signed with SNCF in 2010 to supply up to 860 OMNEO Regio 2N trains to the French regions.
Debut on the Transilien N-Line
The new order coincides with the debut of the Regio 2N on SNCF Transilien network’s N-Line that took place on 14.12.2020. Two such trains have been deployed on the line runs between Paris-Montparnasse and Sèvres-Rive Gauche stations.
