Further Cobra trams ordered?
filed on: 05.11.2007 (5th Nov 2007)
In January, this website reported that the deadline for confirming the option of further Cobra trams was the end of October. This deadline has now passed without any official news of an order having reached my knowledge. It is, however, suggested by VBZ internal sources that Bombardier and VBZ have reached an agreement. Possibly, the referendum on Tram Zürich West (25th November) means part of the order is conditional (and would also explain why the news is being kept low key). The recent presentation of VBG's new corporate identity, while not directly stating that Cobras are involved, does suggest that Stadtbahn Glattal will be worked by Cobras. Another clue lies in the Cobra featuring more prominently on Bombardier's website than was previously the case. Watch this space for more details.
