Swiss-made rescue train for Austria

Stadler Rail is to deliver 18 of the multifunctional, low-emission firefighting and rescue trains to ÖBB-Infrastruktur. Under the name “Servicejet”, they will be stationed at Austrian tunnel portals and deployed on site to assist firefighters.


The vehicles were developed and produced at the Swiss sites in Bussnang and St. Margrethen. The new rescue train is 68 m long, has a top speed of 160 km/h in both directions and a trimodal drive concept. Its electric hybrid drive system can run on the overhead line, by batteries and diesel generators.


It can fight its way through a smoky tunnel to the source of the fire, rescue people from damaged trains, tow damaged trains and fight fires. (ben)
