Bombardier signs 300-train deal with Austrian Federal Railways
(Reuters) - Bombardier Inc (BBDb.TO: Quote) said on Thursday it had signed a deal to deliver up to 300 Talent 3 trains to the Austrian Federal Railways for about 1.8 billion euros ($1.9 billion) at list prices.
Bombardier said the first 21 of the electric trains would be delivered in 2019.
The Talent 3 is a multiple-unit railcar that allows for up to 50 percent more seating capacity than its predecessor generation, the Montreal-based company said.
Austrian Federal Railways already operates 187 Talent-family trains. About 1,400 Talent series trains are already in service in Europe and Canada.
