Zürich S-Bahn in Berlin
filed on: 23.09.2010 (23rd Sep 2010)
Right now (21-24 September), Berlin is hosting Innotrans, the trade fair for the rail industry. The Swiss manufacturer, Stadler, is represented and exhibiting a FLIRT for Norway, a GTW for an Austrian regional railway, a Variobahn tram for Norway's Bergen and a RABe 511 double-deck S-Bahn for Zürich.
Continuing in the tradition of applying names to Zürich's double-deck S-Bahns, the first train has been named Berlin. The type, it has been announced, will be known under the more questionable name of KISS, explained as komfortabler, innovativer, spurtstarker, S-Bahn-Zug (comfortable, innovative, good at spurting, S-Bahn train). Form your own opinions.
