Blues At Velim

No, it's not about a new music festival at the VUZ Velim test centre, but about a new Trenitalia EDMU, which arrived in the Czech Republic on 6 April 2021.

Built by Hitachi Rail in Pistoia, it is a first train of the new four-car Class HTR 412, where „H“ in the designation stands for „hybrid“. These units will therefore be able to run both when fed with a 3 kV DC voltage from the catenary and on non-electrified lines using an auxiliary diesel drive and/or traction batteries.
