Secret Report: Train Discarded by Dutch Railways is Excellent Train

The Italian Fyra train which has been discarded by the NS (Dutch Railways) is far from the ‘wreck’ the NS claims. A secret report of the British technical office Mott McDonald is in the hands of the Dutch daily Telegraaf. According to the report, which has also been seen by the NS the Fyra meets the specifications agreed. The design has also been accepted by the Dutch Railways. There are many small problems which can be solved. Within 17 months all Dutch Fyra trains can be turned into good quality trains. A major court case between the Italian train builder Ansaldo and the NS on this issue is pending.
