Just some informations about italian double-deck stock (you've jet seen pics).

Basically we have 4 different kind of racks:

EMUs:

- Oldest are "TAF" (meaning "Treno ad Alta Frequentazione", or High Capacity Train), dated 1990's and classified ALe 426+Le 736+Le 736+ALe 506. Owners are Trenitalia (Italian State Company) and LeNord (Lombardia Region company). Some units with little differences, are deliveried by Ansaldobreda for Morocco.

- More recent are "TSR" (meaning "Treno per Servizi Regionali", or Regional Services Train). Thay are still in production (builder is a consortium leaded by Ansaldobreda). The owner is FNM-Ferrovie Nord Milano (Lombardia Region) that lease them to LeNord and Trenitalia for commuter services around Milano ("Linee S"-Suburban Lines).


Hauled stock:

- Oldest are "Casaralta" (a former italian firm) double deck coaches, built under CIMT (French firm) licence in 1980's; They are very common in all big italian towns; interestly, not only Trenitalia but also the local Puglia Region FSE Company (Ferrovie del Sud Est - South East Railway) own some of such coaches.

- Still in delivery today are "Vivalto" coaches, built by a consortium of little italian (and east european) companies with Bombardier electrical system and Siemens boogies.

Bye!

LIRR C3:







NJT multilevel:

The multilevels are much bigger and more comfy inside, ride smoother, and are rated to 110 mph. I believe these currently serve about half or more of the NJT lines. A few of the lines need track upgrades to take the weight of a full train of these. I ride one usually once a week in one direction, usually from newark to trenton.

The LIRR C3's are rated to 85 mph and do not operate outside of NY. I only hopped on one of these, i found them to be quite small inside compared to the single level of the M7.

Japan also has double deck trains

1st you have the Shinkansen E1 and E4 series.


newpre.blog94.fc2.com/


realrailway.com

There are also some non high speed full double or partly double EMUs used for limited express trains and night trains.




newpre.blog94.fc2.com/

The suburban trains operated by the JR also have a couple of double stock cars, they are the 1st class green cars.


newpre.blog94.fc2.com/

bUT Most trains are single deck because single deck trains have a bigger standing capacity then double deck trains and can have more doors.

The UK doesn't have any double deck trains due to loading gauge restrictions. But tbh I think a lot of them trains don't look very nice except maybe the TGV duplex

Interesting exception. I find it odd that so many places in the world have double deck trains yet the double decker bus is synonymous with the UK.

They will bw used on a suburban line into Teheran.

I think they are a Chinese design that is manufactured locally.
