„metronom“ Bi-Level Commuter Train

In the „metronom“ through Northern Germany
The "metronom" bi-level trains on the route Hamburg – Bremen and Hamburg – Uelzen have offered a topnotch hourly schedule in fast regional passenger service since December of 2003, and since December of 2005 further on from Uelzen via Hannover to Göttingen. All of the trains feature pleasant air conditioning and run extra quietly. They have comfortable seats with enough legroom, quiet areas, snack and drink automats in every train, generously dimensioned bicycle and wheelchair cars, as well as clean, comfortable restrooms. These trains are pulled by 160 km/h / 100 mph fast class 146.5 TRAXX electric locomotives and with their blue-yellow-white paint scheme offer a pleasant change from the red monotony of the DB AG.

Prototype: „metronom“ bi-level commuter train consisting of a class 146.2 electric locomotive, 3 bi-level intermediate cars, and 1 bi-level cab control car. The locomotive and cars are in the current paint scheme for metronom Railroad Company, LLC, Uelzen, Germany. The train looks as it currently does in real life.
