Niederbarnimer Eisenbahn Orders 31 Battery-operated Trains From Siemens

German based rail-service provider Niederbarnimer Eisenbahn has ordered 31 two-car, battery-operated Mireo Plus B trains from Siemens Mobility. The Berlin-Brandenburg metropolitan area will get the first battery-electric, emission-free regional trains in late 2024, Siemens said in a statement.

The environmentally friendly Mireo Plus B trains will run on all lines of the East Brandenburg rail network.

The new trains will provide additional passenger-oriented services with regard to both equipment and service standards.

In the future, passengers will also have free WiFi access, a real-time passenger information system, and a specially designated family area, the company said.
