Škoda Transportation completes first part of major German contract

The Czech company Škoda Transportation has completed its first train as part of an order for Germany’s Deutsche Bahn, iDnes.cz reported on Monday. The order is seen as a major breakthrough for Škoda Transportation. However, production delays mean that the company will not be presenting the new train at next week’s Innotrans railway trade fair, the news website said. Under the CZK 2.6 billion deal, the Czech firm is supplying Deutsche Bahn with six six-wagon, bilevel trains including locomotives.
