Italy’s Ferrovie del Gargano (FdG) has placed a third order with Stadler Rail for multiple-unit FLIRT trains. Following orders in 2007 and 2009, FdG has exercised an option for another three 3-carriage FLIRTs (Fast Light Innovative Regional Trains). The trains will be running in the Apulia region of southern Italy. This order brings the number of FLIRTs in operation at FdG to a total of seven. The three additional FLIRTs in this order will be similar to the four trains that are currently in successful operation. The order volume amounts to approximately EUR 15 million.
