Alstom (Bombardier Transportation) continues with the production of ZEFIRO Express X80 EMU for Swedish public transport operator Västtrafik.
77 locomotives belonging to Alpha Trains will be upgraded to ETCS Baseline 3 Release 2.
Following conditions of test operation in the Czech Republic being fulfilled, remaining TRAXX MS3 locomotives ordered so far by Czech operators can be delivered, as they can use them at least within the country.
In early this year, we witnessed extensive disputes over the contract for new trains to be ordered for the Line RER B in Paris.
Conditions given by Drážní úřad for test operation of the very first TRAXX MS3 locomotives in revenue service, 388.001 and 002, were fulfilled recently.
On 29 January 2021, Alstom announced completion of the acquisition of Bombardier Transportation.
On 19 January 2021, Bombardier Transportation announced that its Chinese joint venture, Bombardier Sifang (Qingdao) Transportation Ltd. (BST), has been awarded a contract by China State Railway Group to provide maintenance service for 32 BST-built high-speed trains.
