Metrowagonmash Delivered this Year’s First Two DMUs to Zeleznice Srbije

Metrowagonmash JSC (MWM, an entity of Transmashholding JSC) has delivered this year’s first two DMUs to Zeleznice Srbije (Serbian Railways). 

Under the contract entered into in October last year, the plant is to deliver to the customer 27 DMUs and spare parts for them through 2017. 

The class DP-S DMU offers all necessary conditions for passenger comfortable trip. The passenger saloon features upholstered seats with armrests. The driver’s cab and passenger saloons are equipped with HVAC systems supplied by Webasto, Germany. 

The cars with a sanitary unit have a multifunctional area to accommodate baby strollers, bikes, wheelchairs and oversized baggage. Fold-out seats are located in the same area on the side walls alongside with and opposite to the sanitary unit. Hübner (Germany) gangways ensure safe and comfortable passengers flow through the diesel train. Moreover, cars are easy to access from both classic platform stations and stations without a platform. Adjustable footsteps may be controlled independently.  

At customer’s choice, this batch DMUs are equipped with halogen bulb headlight instead of LED headlight used before, and different light fixtures (bulb-based spot lights have been replaced with LED ones) over passenger doors and in gangways. Other changes touched the guide of sanitary unit round door as well as design of vent window and door locks in the driver’s cab. 

This order is the third DMU order placed by Zeleznice Srbije to Metrowagonmash. As many as 12 two-car DMUs produced over 2010 – 2012 by the company are successfully operated today in the Republic of Serbia.
