Bombardier on track with $226M order

Montreal based Bombardier says it has an order to supply Germany's Abellio Rail with 35 of its Talent 2 trains in a deal valued at US$226 million.

Bombardier announced in a release Monday morning that it will supply 20 three-car and 15 five-car trains, with the vehicles due to enter service in December 2015.

The company develops and manufactures the Talent 2 trains at its site in Hennigsdorf, Germany.

Bombardier says the units will be equipped with its MITRAC 1000 propulsion and control system.

It says one of the advantages of this system is that it allows the train to accelerate quickly to a constant speed.
