DESIGN OF ELECTRIC MULTIPLE UNIT TRAINS FOR REGIONAL RAIL SERVICE

DESIGN AV REGIONALTAAG

An important element in the promotion of public transport is the vehicle design. In the evaluation of tenders for a new electric multiple unit train for Swedish regional rail services, EMU 90R, the treatment of design issues varies considerably between bidders. Professional expertise has been engaged in order to create a basic design to be adopted by the various Swedish county transport administrations, interested and engaged in regional rail services. The study has been concentrated upon the following issues: seating comfort, compartmentation, lighting, materials, baggage handling, disabled passengers, heating and ventilation. To this basic, yet flexible, concept the various administrations may add individual solutions to fit the image and the special needs for their customers. (A)
