Remarks & Notes 
First test runs today of the brandnew highspeed train "EC 250" (designation Stadler Rail) or "Giruno" (designation of the SBB) RABe 501 001. The articulated 11 car train is leaving Sulgen for the commissioning center of Stadler Rail in Erlen. The name "Giruno" is an artificial word formed from the common buzzard in rhaeto-romanic (girùn) and an italian "o" in the end. The train for 15000 V 16,7 Hz AC, 25000 V 50 Hz AC and 3000 V DC has a maxium power of 6000 kW, 405 seats, a dining car, is 202 meter long and the max. velocity is 250 km/h.
