Germany's LNVG orders more double-deck coaches, locomotives from Bombardier


Germany’s Landesnahverkehrsgesellschaft Niedersachsen (LNVG) recently awarded a $172 million contract to Bombardier Transportation to supply 78 double-deck coaches and nine locomotives.

The vehicles will be delivered between May 2006 and December 2007.

The order is an add-on to a contract LNVG awarded to Bombardier in 2001 for 66 double-deck coaches and 10 electric locomotives. In 2003, the railway exercised an option for 40 additional coaches and eight locomotives.
