On 8 December 2021, TMH Germany celebrated the arrival of the first train of contract partner Go-Ahead Bayern at the newly-built maintenance facility in Langweid am Lech. A year ago, on 1st December 2020, the private operator awarded TMH Germany a 12-year maintenance contract for its fleets of 78 EMUs. For this project, TMH is investing over 45 million EUR in the construction of one of Europe's most modern maintenance depots in Germany. 

Klaus Eberhard Hock, Managing Director TMH Germany: "We are pleased that the first train of Go-Ahead Bavaria has arrived at our new maintenance facility today! The team has prepared intensively for this date. Together with our local construction partners, we have completed the first workshop halls in record time. We would like to thank the outstanding team at Go-Ahead for their trust and wish them all the best for the start of operations!”. 

On 12 December, Go-Ahead Bavaria will start operations on the E-Netz Allgäu with 22 FLIRTs connecting München with Lindau via Memmingen. TMH will then immediately start operational maintenance. More trains will follow next year when operations start in December 2022 on the Augsburg network. 

In early December, TMH Germany's maintenance team moved from the interim workshop at Bahnpark Augsburg to the new workshop hall in Langweid am Lech. After completion of the second construction phase in summer 2022, the new facility will include three halls, covering 9,000 m² of workshop space, 2,000 m² of logistics space and 1,500 m² of office space. The depot will have sufficient capacity for other operators.
