This is a page of EMUs.
Here are two interesting fluted stainless steel suburban 3 car units of Class Z 6100 built between 1965 and 1971. They are due for replacement in 2011. They have a relatively modern Dellner automatic coupling, so either this is a later modification or maybe just that Britain was very late into the game with these, which wouldn't surprise me one bit.
|These 25kV AC units operate services as far north as Compiègne.|
Two shots of a modern double deck EMU of Class Z 26500. Unit number 516 is formed of 5 cars (the majority of this class are 4 car units), and is branded for working Picardie services.
Built by Alstom/Bombardier from 2004 onwards, each car has one motor bogie and they are capable of working on 1500V DC and 25kV AC.
|The centre car is what we British call an open composite, car number 261531.|
