Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. BB 4030 is a 3-car electric multiple unit used by the BB for regional rail passenger transport, especially on the Vienna S-Bahn. A derived variant BB 4130 with increased power allowing speeds up to 130 km/h was operated on the Transalpin international rail connection between Wien Westbahnhof and Basel SBB. From 1979 onwards the 4030 was gradually replaced by the BB 4020, the last trains were retired in 2004. A 4030.2 unit has been preserved and is on display at the railway museum in Schwechat. An electric multiple unit or EMU is a multiple unit train consisting of self-propelled carriages, using electricity as the motive power. An EMU requires no separate locomotive, as electric traction motors are incorporated within one or a number of the carriages.show more
