New Protos train standing in Eindhoven
The Protos is a diesel-electric train made by the German factory Fahrzeugtechnik Dessau.
The train is a modulair concept and can exist from 1 to 5 modules.
The trains have an lowered floor, so the entree is the same height as the station.
The first train left the factory in September 2006.
The dutch company Connexxion ordered 5 trains and they will be drive in the region of Amersfoort.
In the picture you see the Protos train parked at a trainstation in Eindhoven.
