Partnership To Develop North American Battery Train

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Railway Gazette.

This is the first paragraph.

A contract for the development and testing of a battery multiple-unit for the North American market based on Stadler’s Flirt Akku design for Europe has been signed by the Swiss manufacturer, Utah State University and the Advancing Sustainability through Powered Infrastructure for Roadway Electrification engineering research centre.

After my recent visit to Liverpool, after which I wrote Riding In A Train Designed To Run On Battery Power, I am certainly of the belief that Stadler know where they are going.

  1. Stadler has a manufacturing plant in the US (a requirement for rolling stock on US railways), making a variety of models including European loading gauge style version of the FLIRT (which has been deployed in a couple of variants on a couple of city/regional lines)
