The last in an order of 36 new GO train coaches from Alstom has now arrived at Metrolinx’s Willowbrook facility in Etobicoke, Canada.
Metrolinx placed the order for these trains in September 2019 and they were built in Alstom’s facility in Thunder Bay, Ontario.
The contract was made up of 31 standard cars and five accessible coaches. In total they represent 6,000 new seats for GO train riders.
This final delivery brings the new fleet total to 364 train cars, all equipped with crash energy management (CEM) technology and on-board diagnostic systems that will help identify problems quickly and lower maintenance costs.
“The design and structure of this new car represents a quantum leap in commuter car crashworthiness, which was awarded the Railway Association of Canada award for safety for this design.”
