Alstoms new Coradia Meridian regional train was delivered on 27th of March to Trenitalia at the Termini station in Rome in the presence of FS Italian Group management. Renamed Jazz by the Italian railways, the train presented is part of the 70 Alstom Coradia Meridian trains ordered by FS in November 20121.

Comfortable and vivacious, Jazz has a new livery characterised by the marked contrast between its matt anthracite grey background and bright brush strokes of colour that enhance the dynamism and compactness of the trains design. The trains will have four distinct configurations (metropolitan, with more standing room; regional, with more seats; regional express, for more comfortable journey on longer distances and airport, with more space for luggage) which can be easily and quickly modified to better address the mobility needs of passengers and operators.

They are equipped with a video-surveillance system, information screens, and notices in braille, as well as a loudspeaker system and 220 V sockets for cell phones, portable PCs and tablets. These trains – that are 95% recyclable – will improve the quality of the journeys of commuters in many Italian regions.

Our hope is that the train will open up new opportunities for our Italian factories and the sub-contractors that are equally committed to confronting this challenge.
