Green Train Concept and Interior Design

In the Green Train research programme, the objective is to develop an attractive train concept in the form of a concept proposal based on economic assessments. Green Train is to be an attractive express train for both business and leisure-time travellers. High standards of comfort can be motivated by passengers’ willingness to pay. One fundamental idea is the wide carbody for services in Scandinavia to achieve lower total costs for train traffic than a carbody with a normal, quite narrow European continental profile. The trains are thereby made shorter and 2 + 3 seating arrangements are optimised for optimal comfort. Another principle is that the train must be designed to allow punctual station stops, also during periods of peak load. Boarding and alighting must take place within very tight margins, which means that doors, entrances and luggage racks must be in well-considered locations and correctly dimensioned.
