Without any great publicity, ODEG received in late January 4746 301, the first of its seven new Class 4746.3 EMUs ordered in March 2019 by Alpha Trains to be leased to ODEG for its RE9 and RE10 services. 4746 301 (with end cars 4746 301 and 4746 801) started regular service on 6 February and is now operated there together with Class 4746 cityjet EMUs rented temporarily from ÖBB since December 2019. End of deliveries of the Desiro ML units to ODEG is being expected in March 2020, with 4746 302 being envisaged to arrive there in the second half of February. Then the ÖBB Desiro ML EMUs will be gradually returned to Wien.
