On 9 January 2019 Alstom has delivered the last of the 30 additional Class X61 Coradia Nordic EMUs ordered by Skånetrafiken, regional public transportation authority and operator in southern Sweden. The completion of the 2015 order, building on an existing fleet of 69 trains, has brought the Skånetrafiken fleet of Coradia Nordic trains, better known as „Pågatågen“, to a total of 99 units - one of the largest fleets in Sweden. Each four-car 160 km/h Coradia Nordic delivered to Skånetrafiken is 74 m long and has a capacity of up to 510 passengers. The trains were built at Alstom Salzgitter works.
