DB Regio has ordered 17 Coradia Stream electric multiple units to run on the Main-Weser subnetwork between Frankfurt, Giessen, Marburg and Kassel.

These will be assembled at Alstom’s Salzgitter site in Germany.

The new Coradia Stream double-deck trains will run on Germany’s Main-Weser regional network operating between Frankfurt, Giessen, Marburg and Kassel.

DB Regio has ordered 13 four-car and four five-car trainsets, which will be brought into service alongside a timetable change planned for December 2024.

The high-capacity version of the Coradia Stream offers Main-Weser Express line passengers up to 15 percent more space compared to the trains currently in service.

The four-car trainset is made up of two double-decker control cars and two single-decker middle cars, providing a total of 420 seats.

The five-car trainset adds an extra double-decker middle car, bringing capacity up to 540.

When operated in a double traction combination of four and five-car vehicles, capacity can be increased to up to 960 seats.

This is more than any regional train previously used on this line.

Müslüm Yakisan, President of Alstom’s Germany, Austria and Switzerland (DACH) region, said:

“We're very pleased that DB Regio has chosen our modern Coradia Stream high-capacity train for their RE 30 line between Frankfurt and Kassel to the East.

“These comfortable trains will provide passengers on the Main-Weser Express with a premium travel experience and additional space.”
