First FLIRT-railcar of GYSEV is ready (Photo Gallery)

First FLIRT-railcar of GYSEV is ready :The first green-yellow FLIRT-railcar of GYSEV is ready. The vehicle underwent a successful acceptance factory test last week in the factory of Stadler in Poland. As a result, the brand-new green-yellow railcar may start operations on the Sopron–Szombathely–Szentgotthárd railway line of GYSEV as planned, in December. Travelling will thus be even faster and safer on the recently refurbished line. In the frameworks of the same contract, three further vehicles are to follow the first railcar. The railway undertaking is expanding its vehicle fleet by a total of 10 new FLIRT-trains, having signed a contract about the delivery of further 6 vehicles with Stadler this year.

After the acceptance test, the first set of wagons is to arrive from Siedlce at the Hungarian border as early as next week. The 30-ton, polished bodies of the vehicles, that had been put together in the plant in Szolnok of the Stadler Rail Group and transported to Poland this spring, have been equipped with all necessary equipment.

This railcar is the first item of that four-vehicle-fleet, about which GYSEV and Stadler signed a supply contract in April last year. From the border, the vehicle will go straight to the service centre of Stadler in Pusztaszabolcs, where it will be put into operation.

Before taking up operation, strict technical and official controls are going to be carried out, as usual. The National Transport Authority is likely to conduct the acceptance test on the Győr–Hegyeshalom railway line. Once it is successful, the authority will issue GYSEV an operating permit, necessary for traffic operations.

In possession of the permit, GYSEV will begin operating the train on the Sopron–Szombathely–Szentgotthárd railway line; passengers are expected to meet the first new FLIRT already at the end of this year.
