Alsace region and SNCF Alsace inaugurated a new multi-series maintenance workshop for the Alsace TER of Mulhouse. In the long run, the workshop will accommodate the Coradia Polyvalent (Régiolis) trains of the Alsace region.

The Alsace region has acquired 24 Régiolis dual-mode (electric and diesel) and dual-current (1,5 and 25 Kv) train sets. To date, 11 Régiolis train sets have been delivered to the Alsace region and a team of 7 SAV technicians ensure maintenance operations under guarantee in SNCF’s workshops in Strasbourg.

In its suburban configuration, the Régiolis rolling stock acquired by the Alsace region has a large number of doors and exchange platforms to help passengers get on and off the train and optimise stopping time in stations.

The Régiolis train sets can also accommodate standing passengers in rush-hour in conditions of maximised comfort and security. All the train sets have a fully low floor, facilitating access for all passengers, including passengers with reduced mobility. The elements of the train are interconnected, making it possible to move along the whole length of the train. The Régiolis train sets of Alsace are also equipped with new functionalities, such as display screens and a dynamic sound system. They also have electrical sockets and diverse space for luggage storage.

To date, a total of 71 train sets have been delivered to 10 French regions: Alsace, Aquitaine, Basse-Normandie, Franche-Comté, Lorraine, Midi-Pyrénées, Pays-de-la-Loire, Picardie, Poitou-Charentes and Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur. Alstom’s SAV teams are currently deployed in these regions and guarantee the availability of material by ensuring corrective maintenance and reinforcing the reliability of the material. In total, the Régiolis trains have already covered over 2.5 million km in commercial service.

To date, 184 Régiolis have been ordered by 12 French regions. The production of Régiolis trains creates over 4000 jobs in France at Alstom and its suppliers. 6 of the 12 Alstom sites in France participate in this project: Reichshoffen for the design and assembly, Ornans for the motors, Le Creusot for the bogies, Tarbes for the traction chains, Villeurbanne for the on board electronics and Saint-Ouen for the design. is a railway information and news platform.
