EMU with 250km/h operational speed



After all those years I still can't believe someone designed a high speed train like this. Open front, lights not in streamline with body and top light sticking out. How could such a non streamline design get through from drawing to production! The first Shinkansen and TGV are more streamlined.
@EuroSprinter I'm still wondering how Fyra could accept a design like that... the whole front looks more like an american heavy haul-truck than a real train... Such a shame for italy.
@Taurus717
Fortunately none of our US heavy haul trucks look like that! But at least it has plenty of fresh air intake capacity for the auxiliary turbine engine 😉
