New double-decker trains

At home on the move in our new long-distance double-decker train.

SBB has bought 62 new double-decker trains for long-distance routes. These long-distance double-deckers are 200 metres long, offer 10,200 HP and travel at up to 200 km per hour. They have more seats than their predecessors, power outlets next to all seats in first and second class, state-of-the-art mobile repeaters, attractive family zones, modern restaurants and bright, spacious WC facilities.

As it is not possible to utilise conventional tilt technology to compensate for centrifugal forces when travelling along bends with double-decker trains, an additional technology is also used: WAKO roll compensation. This allows trains to reach greater speeds along bends,  in turn reducing travel times by up to 8%.
