Are those perforated panels? And are they the final finish? If so, they will get dusty and dirty really quickly.

New Helsinki tram to be tested in Germany
Tuesday, September 23, 2014



IRJ at InnoTrans 2014: Transtech, Finland, is displaying the second of two pre-series Artic low-floor LRVs for Helsinki City Transport (HKL) this week, before sending the metre-gauge vehicle for trials in the German city of Würzburg

Transtech managing director Mr Markku Blomberg told IRJ that the 27.6m-long LRV will undergo testing in Germany for several weeks before returning to Finland.

The first prototype vehicle was delivered to Helsinki last year and has undergone an extensive programme of tests covering all of the city's trams lines.

HKL has ordered 40 Artics with an option for 90 additional units and the first series vehicle is due to be delivered to Helsinki next autumn. The LRVs will be assembled at Transtech's Otanmäki plant and HKL expects to receive the new trams at a rate of 10 units per year. Transtech will provide maintenance support for the first three years

Helsinki exercises second FLIRT option
24 Sep 2014



FINLAND: Helsinki train procurement body Junakalusto exercised an option for 34 Stadler FLIRT electric multiple-units on September 24. This is the second option on the order for 32 trainsets placed in 2006, and is worth €200m.

Deliveries are due between the start of 2016 and spring 2017, with the nine trains from the first option due to be delivered in November this year.

The 80% low-floor four-car trainsets have 234 seats arranged 3+2. Winterisation features include triple-glazed windows, a heat recovery system for the air-conditioning, and heaters by the doors to keep the interior temperature constant during boarding. The trains feature 11 information screens and six emergency contact points

Very nice match of concrete, metal and rocky wall. The high ceiling makes the platform even better. Appealing design in general.

Do you guys know if the intercity trains will serve the airport as well, or only local trains will go there on the ring line?
