Meneghino Metro

After an initial supply of 27 trains, in 2008 an additional 13 trains were ordered for a total of 40 trains. The trains are made up of six permanently coupled coaches, including two identical, functionally independent traction units, with a driver's cab at each end. Each traction unit consists of two identical motor cars and a trailer with driver's cab (Rp+M1+M2). All the coaches are intercommunicating and the trains can be operated on the three lines (M1, M2, M3) with different power supply voltage (750 Vdc/1500 Vdc) and different signalling systems.

The trains are equipped with an integral air conditioning system for a cozy environment even in the driver’s cab, on board an advanced audio-video information system for stop/connection announcements and an integrated passenger information system with video surveillance devices. In addition, the structure, bogies and doors have been designed to provide a noiseless ride and coaches are fully connected to provide a unique large, comfortable and safe space for passengers.

Tokyo Metro 10000

The 10000 series fleet has been designed to ensure passenger comfort and safety whilst travelling across Tokyo. Offering a clean, efficient and reliable way of commuting to work and moving across the city for tourists, a single train can accommodate over 1,500 passengers in a 10-car formation.

The 10000 series was conceived in 2004 as a new generation train that would look towards the future as well as being safer and more reliable than previous designs.

The first set entered service in September 2006; more sets were later built and put into service progressively. The 10000 series sets were the first trains to be ordered by the then-newly formed Tokyo Metro.

In addition to being used on the Tokyo Metro Yūrakuchō and Fukutoshin Lines, the sets are also used for through-running through to and from the Tobu Tōjō Line, Seibu Yūrakuchō and Ikebukuro Line, Tokyu Tōyoko Line, and Yokohama Minatomirai Laine.

Baltimore Metro

Hitachi Rail has been awarded a contract from Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) to provide a new metro fleet of railcars and a Communication Based Train Control (CBTC) system for the Baltimore Metro Subway Link.

The project features 78 state-of-the-art Hitachi railcars and the replacement of the existing signalling system with an advanced CBTC system. The new Baltimore metro has been designed to be highly innovative in terms of safety, passenger comfort and design, with a 30-year life-cycle capable of providing an average journey of 80,000 miles per year.

Each bi-directional vehicle has a minimum composition of two identical stainless steel cars, "married pair", with the ability for multiple compositions. Each car has 76 seats and a total capacity of 196 passengers. The floor structure guarantees fire resistance for at least 30 minutes, in compliance with the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) 130 requirements. Each car is fully-motorised, with an IGBT inverter per each motor bogie.

All interiors, seat layouts, arrangement of accessories, and heating and lighting systems are designed to provide maximum comfort to passengers and to meet the requirements for access, travel and movement under the American with Disabilities Act (ADA). The vehicle is equipped with a ground / train communication system, a modern passenger information system and WiFi connection as well as a state-of-the-art integrated diagnostic system in the driver’s cab.

Particular care during the vehicle’s design has been given to the choice of materials able to reduce the weight and therefore energy use, in compliance with fire and smoke emission regulations, as well as to the maintenance of the new metro trains. The car head will be made of fibreglass and, combined with the presence of shaped LEDs, will deliver a modern and innovative design.
