This is one of 43 units delivered between 1991 & 2001 which seats both first & second class passengers. It has a top speed of 120 km/h, 75 mph and is rated at 550 kW, 737 hp. The unit was built by Stadler as their model GTW2/6. It uses a central motor unit on a B truck with two light-weight driving trailers each riding on its own non-powered 4 wheel truck thus having a wheel arrangement of 2-B-2. There is a corridor in the engine module to allow passengers to move between the two driving trailers, it is very noisy in there.
