Bombardier Talent 2
Today's post is again, inspired by a news article I read online. Apparently, National Express has just unveiled their Talent 2 trains that are set to enter regional services in Germany a year from now. I'm sure the original Talent isn't too strange to riders in Europe, although some may not know that is her name. In fact, a few of them can even be found in North America if you look carefully enough. The O Train for example, a short stubby commuter rail line in the Canadian capital of Ottawa, is a diesel version of the original Bombardier Talent.
With a top speed of 100 mph, the Talent 2 is designed to operate regional services on the mainline. As usual, this Wikipedia page will tell you more, and way more about this little trainset, her operators, routes, etc., and a link from it will probably tell you what S-Bahn exact is (you might need Google Translate, the English page of Talent 2 doesn't really say much at all).
