CANADA: Siemens Mobility announced a further contract to provide 15 S200 light rail vehicles to Calgary Transit on February 25.
They will be built at Siemen’s Sacramento facility to replace CTrain’s U2 LRVs which have operated since the 1980s.
The order is in addition to the 63 S200 ordered in 2013 for C$200m, which have already been delivered.
According to Calgary Transit, the design of the LRV front is inspired by am ice hockey goalkeeper mask. It was chosen by city residents ahead of designs inspired by the Bow River and a buffalo.
