Website comment: These are part of a batch whose acceptance was halted in March 2004. The first five vehicles have been on loan to Freiburg since 2004 to cover for the vehicle shortage following the withdrawal of the earlier units, but remain the property and responsibility of Siemens — They will shortly be returned for modifications. The tenth vehicle in this batch is provided as a replacement for 272, which was destroyed in investigative testing by Siemens in March 2004.
