On 6 November 2013 the first of 70 new Coradia Meridian EMUs being built by Alstom at Savigliano for Trenitalia started tests on the Le Nord (former Ferrovie Nord Milano) network. The 5-car trains have a top service speed of 160 km/h. Here is ETR 425 001 at Varese Nord on the first day of test runs, the train being mostly covered in white protective vinyls. The future livery is shown in the artist's impression.
