Centre of excellence for FLIRT and GTW.

A new generation of vehicles is now rolling in. The FLIRT (flexible, lightweight, innovative regional train) and GTW (articulated trainset) are proving particularly popular.

SBB Passenger has been buying FLIRT trains since 2004 and, with its subsidiaries, has Europe's biggest fleet of FLIRT and GTW units. In recent years we have built up a wealth of experience in the operation and maintenance of these vehicles.
