NStCM looks to the future
filed on: 13.03.2012 (13th Mar 2012)
NStCM (Nyon - La Cure) has ordered new units from Stadler. The two-section trains are based on the manufacturer's existing narrow gauge concepts as recently delivered to other lines. The new trains will be delivered in batches, with the first four arriving in 2016 and being used to increase service frequency on the Nyon - Genolier section to quarter hourly. Six further units will follow in 2020 to replace the Vevey units that currently work the line. The order is worth 66 million Francs.
NStCM are also planning a new depot near Paleo to replace the existing facilities in Nyon. Also being studied is an extension of the line from La Cure to Rousses (across the border in France).
