"We are delighted to be able to support the growing success of our long-standing customer Niederbarnimer Eisenbahn with our trains," says Thomas Schmidt, Managing Director of Alpha Trains Europa GmbH.
"Even after more than 10 years in service, the Talent fleet is extremely popular with our passengers. The trains are very reliable and are used by many commuters and tourists taking them safely to their destinations in East Brandenburg and Berlin," comments Detlef Bröcker, Managing Director of NEB Betriebsgesellschaft mbH.
Before entering service at NEB, the four Talents will undergo a general inspection, including the revision of all essential components in a workshop, monitored and supervised by Alpha Trains’ in-house engineering department.
NEB has been leasing trains of various types from Alpha Trains for more than 10 years, including 19 diesel multiple units for the Ostbrandenburg network, which are in operation since the timetable change in December 2013.
