Abellio unveils new Wuppertal-Solingen DMUs

The first of nine new Coradia LINT DMUs for the S7 Wuppertal-Solingen route has been unveiled by Abellio.

From the December 15 timetable change, Abellio will operate the route for transport authority VRR.

The new trains, which are still awaiting certification, have been procured by Abellio but will later be sold on to VRR which will then lease them back to the operator.

Managing director of Abellio Rail NRW said the LINT model was the “right choice” for the Bergisches Land region.
