Zürich S-Bahn in San Francisco

filed on: 19.07.2011 (19th Jul 2011)

San Francisco is building a major transit interchange called the Transbay Terminal. In a future phase, it is planned that Caltrain commuter rail and high-speed trains will also serve this terminal, for which purpose a tunnel will be dug under the city. Well, what has this got to do with Zürich? The animations created to promote the terminal and the rail link feature, besides sleek high-speed trains, double-deck commuter trains that look surprisingly like the Siemens RABe514 of Zürich's S-Bahn.

Zürich and San Francisco are sister cities, and to promote this, there is already a Zürich tram (of sorts) running in San Franscisco.
