A trainful of ideas

The venerable “Mandarinli” will soon be history. The RBS is replacing these old trains with new custom-designed ones. They will be consecutively introduced to service on the S7 and S9 lines. At least from a livery color point of view, not much has changed as regards the external appearance of the new RBS trainsets. The real differences can be seen in the interiors. Passenger expectations and needs were addressed in the planning phase of the new rolling stock. For instance, the configuration of the interior spaces is better suited to the commuter profile, and the coaches are equipped with air-conditioning systems. The new seat covers, developed in close collaboration with the TRICON design firm, were supplied by Lantal. Their elegant, sleek design coordinates well with the vivid orange color of the low-floor vehicles and perfectly complements the interiors.

Lantal is delighted to have contributed to the project and wishes bon voyage with the new Worbla trains!
