Rolling stock

Junakalusto Oy has delivered 41 new commuter trains i.e. Sm5 trains for the commuter traffic in the metropolitan area in 2008 -2014. New commuter trains are needed because traffic increases and the existing rolling stock is ageing.

During the years 2016 and 2017 40 Sm5 trains will be delivered for the traffic which have been procured under an option contract. Then the total number of Sm5 trains will be 81.

Sm5 commuter trains will be delivered by a Swiss company Stadler Bussnang AG. The brand name given by Stadler to these EMU's is Flirt; that stands for the words Fast Light Innovative Regional Train.
