The next generation of coaches

The next generation of coaches - Reproduced true to scale

Even before the paint has fully dried on the new ALLEGRA multiple units, RhB is looking ahead: the next generation of coaches is already being planned.

Reproduced true to scale
The knowledge gathered by RhB specialists at each commissioning, and in the first few years of new trains operating, works both ways – for optimising the formations that are already running, as well as for the development of the next passenger coaches. For the first time, coach units are being produced in Landquart which can be coupled to the ALLEGRA multiple units as well as to other train compositions. Their outlines are already tucked away in a corner of the extensive assembly halls as train mock-ups: the prototype is to be found here, produced one-to-one out of wood. Every detail has been reproduced precisely, from decorative elements in the passenger areas and the panorama windows in the roof, down to the press buttons to open the doors. The first rolling stock of the latest generation should be on the rails by 2015.
