IC 2000 Double-deck train

 


In the nineties, Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) wanted to increase the seating capacity of its intercity trains as there was increasingly too little seating available at peak times and with agglomeration traffic. SBB commissioned the IC 2000 consortium, made up of Bombardier Transportation Switzerland (lead management) and Alstom, to develop and manufacture the IC 2000 double-deck train.

SBB's IC 2000 was the first double-deck intercity train in Europe. It heralded a completely new generation of vehicles - compared with a conventional single-deck train of the same length, the double-deck train increases seating capacity by around 40%.

The consortium delivered 341 carriages to SBB between 1996 and 2004 in five series. The double-deck units have been travelling since spring 1997 on the most important intercity lines in Switzerland.
