Listen to this article

More images and renderings are beginning to emerge of the new high-speed Giruno train sets Stadler is supplying to SBB for the Gotthard route as the detailed design phase continues.

Stadler has built a 1:1 model of the trains interior and as a result has fed back comments from more than 200 people into the next stage of the design process.

Stadler is building 29 of the transalpine trains for SBB to operate on the Gotthard railway between Switzerland and Italy.

The order includes an option for 92 additional trainsets.

Production of the new vehicles, which are 400 metres long with a capacity of 806, will begin at the start of 2016 and the first trains will go into service at the end of 2019.

Once in service, the new trains will reduce journey times between Zurich and Lugano to less than two hours and Zurich and Milan to less than three hours.
