Czech Railways announces Tender for Delivery of upto 90 Express Wagons

Czech Railways (České dráhy) has announced a tender for the delivery of up to 90 express wagons to replace its ageing fleet that should feature air conditioning, internet access and electrical outlets, and offer passengers a smooth ride at speeds of up to 200 km/hour.

This is the second major investment announced this summer by the national railways operator, which faces increasing competition from private transport companies. In late June, Czech Railways signed a contract for the delivery of 50 passenger trains for its Prague – Brno – Bratislava – Budapest line.
