Bombardier is at present working on two ZEFIRO projects. As we reported in R 4/12, p. 6, one involves the Italian V300ZEFIRO, which Trenitalia designates ETR 1000 Frecciarossa. The first half train, composed of four cars, left the AnsaldoBreda factory in Pistoia on 26 March 2013 to start its static tests at Osmannoro, to the northwest of Firenze. These tests were all realised satisfactorily, and then the train was moved to the Bombardier works at Vado Ligure, on 19 April 2013, where it is seen a day later.
