Siemens Mobility to Supply 31 Regional Trains to DB Regio Bayern

The Bayerische Eisenbahngesellschaft – or Bavarian Railway Company (BEG) – is the state-owned passenger transport body that purchases services from operating companies such as DB Regio. It plans, finances and controls regional and suburban rail transport on behalf of the Free State of Bavaria. It has specified that these vehicles much be accessible and air-conditioned with a high capacity and other requirements such as wifi and passenger information displays.

DB Regio opted for four-car Siemens Desiro HC trains. Each one has a capacity of 350 (seated) in second class and 20 (seated) in first class. Up to three Desiro HC trains can be coupled together to operate as a single train.

The four-car Mireo meanwhile has 250 seats in second class and 14 seats in first class. Platforms with a standard height of 76cm will allow level boarding for wheelchair users. The trains will also be equipped with a power lift to assist entering and exiting at stations with lower platforms.

An increasingly common feature in new rolling stock is windows that allow mobile phone signals to get through more easily, thereby substantially boosting reception. These trains will feature the high-frequency windows developed by Siemens Mobility for this purpose.
