Bremgarten-Dietikon orders new trains

filed on: 28.06.2007 (28th Jun 2007)

Bremgarten Dietikon Stadler design BDWM (Bremgarten-Dietikon) has placed an order for 14 new trains. These three section units will be supplied by Stadler for 80 million Franks, with the first unit being delivered in 2009. The design is based on that supplied to Forchbahn and Trogenerbahn. For the first time in the history of the Bremgarten-Dietikon line, the trains will feature first class accomodation.

source: Stadler

This new rolling stock will permit the entire present fleet to be replaced. Be4/8 21-25 of 1993 will be sold to WSB. BDe8/8 1-9 of 1969 are likely to be scrapped, with possibly one unit being preserved.
