Pendolino trains

The new tilt-body Pendolino train fleet enables travelling at 30 to 40% higher speeds, up to 220 km/h, in comparison with conventional trains. Each line section has, however, its own speed limits. The trains are manufactured by Alstom of Italy.

The pressure-tight tilt-body ensures a steady speed maintained even in curves and smooth and quiet travelling also when running at top speeds or in a tunnel.
